SUMMER PALACE II 2011



Summer Palace II was commissioned by Invisible Dust for View Tube Grow Garden, London in 2011. It is a series of six wooden sculptures made from one solid Black Ash tree, local to the south of England. It is housed within the allotment beds of View Tube Grow, a community garden located at View Tube (Pudding Mill Lane, East London).

It acts as a wind shield to protect the plants from the harsh weather conditions in the local area, as well as a temporary extension of the garden, inviting a variety of local artists, community groups to exhibit within the sculptures various windows. Special thanks to City Wood Services (Danny O'Sullivan, Suraiya Tuku), Tom Cretton and Javier Pavon Beltran.
