New installation in partnership with the renowned designer is the latest addition to the Estate’s leading art programme
London-based designer and artist Morag Myerscough is to emblazon Canary Wharf’s Montgomery Square from May, with her latest spectacular art installation, titled Sun Pavilion. Harnessing the vigour and optimism of Londoners this summer, the artwork will be free for the public to visit from Saturday May 29th until late October 2021.
Bursting onto the Estate, Sun Pavilion combines the greenery of towering plants with a spectrum of vibrant colours and striking pattern combinations, creating a sunspot like no other in the city. With spaced seating areas available, Sun Pavilion is the ideal spot to safely catch up with friends and grab a drink from 640 East or one of the many bars close by.
Myerscough’s signature style is characterised by its boldness, with previous eye-catching pieces in Las Vegas, Shanghai, Mexico City, Lisbon and Madrid, leaving a lasting impression on the public across the globe.
Lucie Moore, Group Arts + Events Manager at Canary Wharf comments: “We’re delighted to work with Morag Myerscough and welcome ‘Sun Pavilion’ onto the Canary Wharf estate in time for summer. Morag has been an artist we’ve long admired, and this commission will be a brilliant addition to Canary Wharf. It provides a colourful backdrop for Londoners wanting to catch up with friends and family.”
Morag Myerscough said “The pavilion is a response to the reawakening we are hopeful for this summer. The sun radiates energy and brings joy and we all need a bit of it. The pure glow of the sun ignites us all and raises our spirits. There is nothing better than the feeling of the warm glow of the sun on your face…”
Sun Pavilion forms part of Canary Wharf’s wider summer events programme and the latest addition to its public art collection, the UK’s largest free to visit collection of public art, with more than 75 permanent works by over 50 world-renowned artists and craftsmen.
Canary Wharf is committed to keeping the malls and wider Estate Covid secure. COVID-19 safety measures, such as one-way systems and floor markings, as well as increased cleaning, and hand sanitizers at all entrance points, remain in place throughout.
