Who is watching who in Alastair Mackie's first major outdoor sculpture commission?

At first glance, the Economist Plaza appears empty - the usual centrally positioned sculpture is absent. But scanning the perimeter a lone figure is seen to be lurking amongst the passing crowd. To our surprise - or perhaps more to his - a fully grown male chimpanzee is perched ominously upon the southern railing of the space.

Alastair mackie will concurrently be exhibiting his second solo exhibition in London "Not waving but Drowning" At David Roberts Foundation Fitzrovia.
