Andrew Sabin, known for his exceptional work in the public realm, has created a steel and Jesmonite sculpture, which in effect is the embodiment of his response to the artifice of Jubilee Park as well as its natural qualities. In combining riotous organic growth and horticultural orderliness, Sabin has created a sculpture where contrasting levels of chaos and order are divided.
Franz West, Austria's most celebrated contemporary sculptor, works on a massive scale. His colour-saturated sculptures convey both a sense of joy and of humour, while being the embodiment of formal sculptural values. His sculpture, Verkehrtes T - an inverted capital 'T' - is also a play on language. Verkehrtes: 'turn over', 'pervert', 'transform' . . .
Keith Wilson has focused on Jubilee Park as a place for monuments. His large, brilliant orange Stele 1, with matching viewing seat, Bench 1 (a collaborative work, made with furniture designer Graham Russell) picks up on the spurious informality of the park, as does Thames Walkway: Boat Race, a hybrid borne of references to the abattoir and the River Thames.
