Alex Chinneck installs bullet-pylon for London Design Festival

theface_chinneck_ldf

This year’s landmark project for London Design Festival is by Alex Chinneck, the sculptor known for his large-scale, theatrical projects. Chinneck’s plans were revealed back in May, and his piece has been recently installed in Greenwich just in time for the Festival’s kick-off on the 19th September. The installation is a 35 m high, 15 tonne pylon set upside down into the ground - at least that’s the visible part. What is hidden before the spectators is 420 tonnes of concrete and 1180 m of steel buried underground that is necessary for keeping the pylon in place. Which, as the title “Bullet from a shooting star”, looks like it has been shot to the Earth from above.

The origin of the object, even if only imagined, is unauspicious in itself, and the setting just reinforces the loury atmosphere. The derelict, riverside location with the iconic Millennium Dome as the backdrop creates a dystopian landscape, where the sight of bullet-pylon is even more unsettling. Chinneck confessed that he feels that we are living in a very tense age, and his installation is a kind of imprint of the nervousness of these times. The artists didn’t mean to be a spoilsport for London’s design fest, he rather intended to raise awareness and inspire people to take a look behind the objects. Hopefully, a more peaceful period will soon arrive for us and Chinneck - in the meantime, go and enjoy what London Design Festival has to offer until the 27th September.
