.

As part of the exhibition The Multiple Store @ Canary Wharf that takes place from 21st September to 13th November at the Lobby of One Canada Square, visitors will also be able to see large  sculptures at Jubilee Park (Monday to Sunday, daylight hours). More details, as well as installation images, below.

All inquiries: please contact The Multiple Store: info@themultiplestore.org or +44 (0) 7760 666518.

Grenville Davey: House 2008 Steel and oak

The circle or disc is a recurring motif in Grenville Davey’s sculpture. House, an industrially spun steel vessel inverted, rusted and polished to a mahogany sheen, has a wooden handle set centrally, angled parallel to the dome.

Kenny Hunter: Black Swan 2013 Resin

Black Swan typifies Kenny Hunter’s use of anthropomorphic symbolism, the swan evoking human qualities of enduring partnership and love, while also alluding to ‘Black Swan theory’, a term used to describe inexplicable or unexpected events rationalised with hindsight, deriving from the fact that black swans were thought to be an impossibility. The piece exemplifies Hunter’s practice of transmuting historical ideas through sculpture.

Liliane Lijn: Lost Koan 2007 Glass-reinforced polyester, Perspex, fluorescent lights

A relatively recent version in Liliane Lijn’s series focusing on the shape of the cone, Lost Koan  has its parallel in the space above the earth’s poles where the solar wind meets with the earth’s magnetic field, referred to by astrophysicist Dr Stephen B. Mende as the ‘lost cone’.

Peter Liversidge: Interstate 2001 Aluminium (3mm), stove enamel, reflective materials, fixings (Edition of 10, published by The Multiple Store)

Interstate is a true-to-scale, reflective, American road sign produced using (federal approved) US Interstate Green and font, also called Interstate. Like my other watercolours and text pieces on the North Montana Plains, a real place which I never visited, ‘Interstate’ is about regret, imagination and hope. The sign to a place I never saw makes it a place I can always imagine. (Peter Liversidge)

Simon Periton: The Hanging Debtor 2013 Spray paint on powder-coated steel

The Hanging Debtor is typical of Simon Periton’s decorative ‘cover’ for more serious issues such as politics, popular culture and history. The figure, hanging upside-down, is based on a German illustration from 1438, in which bags of coins in the cloak appear to defy gravity.

Simon Periton creates ‘Resistance is Fertile’ for Waddesdon Manor’s parterre

Two sculptural bedding installations designed by artist Simon Periton (b. 1964) are now on display on the Parterre of Waddesdon Manor, continuing the tradition of three-dimensional bedding begun by Alice de Rothschild. To read more about this installation, click here.

“Part of the joy of visiting Waddesdon is its complexity – the diverse historical and architectural layers and elements that make up the building, the grounds, and their history, as well as the eclectic artworks and artefacts that form the house’s collection (and its many collections within a collection). It’s a complete experience that you immerse yourself in.” 

Simon Periton, 2015

Simon Periton has published two multiples with The Multiple Store, Barbiturate II made in clear, borosilicate (reinforced) glass and A Sunken Owl Prunes a print where the title is an anagram for Unknown Pleasures, an oil on glass that Periton had painted in 2007. These multiples are available for purchase via this website, click here to order.
