Morag Myerscough’s new colorful bamboo installation in London

See through in Grosvenor Square’s garden in London is the artist’s latest project for her city.

As British Summer Time begins and galleries remain shut, Londoners can immerse themselves in this outdoor gallery trail in the heart of Mayfair and Belgravia. The installation See Through is an interactive sculpture of eye-popping colour, geometric patterns and neon messages of hope and joy. Situated in the iconic Grosvenor Square, the artwork invites passers-by to walk through and engage with it as a haven of positivity and joy. It is a buoyant and resilient response to the challenging times we are living in, aiming to uplift those who encounter it and stimulate positive conversation. The messaging for the installation is taken from words and phrases collected by the artist over the past year.

This is Morag Myerscough’s first ever installation constructed with bamboo, a material she selected for its strength and flexibility but also its sustainable, fast-growing properties. The artist carefully considers the materials she uses for her temporary structures, ensuring wherever possible that all are either reused or recycled. For this project, as well as using bamboo she has used ply offcuts collected over the years and the paint she had in her studio.

The installation is part of Wander Art, London’s largest outdoor art trail curated by Alter-Projects and hosted by Landlord Grosvenor Britain and Ireland.
