Tower Bridge presents brand new exhibition ‘Fluid Statics’ from Imogen Piper, the latest artist to take up Residency at the Bridge

About

Since her appointment as the second Artist in Residence,  multidisciplinary research driven artist Imogen Piper has delved into the vast quantities of data accumulated at Tower Bridge. Following three months of exploration, interpretation and experimentation, Imogen’s residency culminates in this exciting new exhibition, which will centre on a large-scale sculpture fashioned from the pipes, containers and tubes that mimic the numerous fluidic systems at the heart of the Bridge.

The work encourages visitors to explore Tower Bridge through new perspectives, offering new interpretations of a familiar icon through data-visualisation. The resulting exhibition strips the Bridge right back to its mechanical core, exploring the intricate process systems central to the function of this iconic river crossing.

The new work will be on display in the Victorian Engine Rooms, inviting visitors to explore and draw parallels between the work and the historic steam engines once integral to powering of the mighty Bridge Lifts.
