Tideway is looking for two artists to help create pieces of art to display at two super sewer sites in Wandsworth.
The two successful artists will work with local schools and community groups to help design the pieces that will adorn site hoardings in King George’s Park and Falconbrook Pumping Station in York Gardens.
The designs will be influenced by the sites’ connections to the River Thames, using the artists’ own interpretation within their proposals.
Bridget Sawyers, Tideway’s Public Art Consultant, said:
“This is an exciting opportunity for artists to work closely with the community to develop two large-scale pieces of work.
“Tideway is looking for elements that relate to its project to clean up the river with components including water, movement, time, ecology and place to inform the artists' approach.”
The artworks will be on show for around two years at the sites, which are part of Tideway’s construction of the new 25km Thames Tideway Tunnel to help tackle sewage pollution in the River Thames.
Tideway welcomes applications from artists working in all disciplines.
Applications for the King George's Park commission are particularly welcome from artists with experience of and interest in working with children and their families as well as community groups.
For the Falconbrook Pumping Station commission, experience working in a school setting will be advantageous.
Applications from artists based in or with a good knowledge of Wandsworth area and its community are particularly encouraged.
The deadline for applications is 12.00pm on Sunday, 17 September 2017.
