WW's Patio Projects #6: new public sculpture from artist Penny Sadubin


'April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain...' -T.S. Eliot, I. THE BURIAL OF THE DEAD, The Waste Land. (1922.) 'Urban Bluebells' by Penny Sadubin is the 6th public art installation in WW Gallery's 'Patio Projects' series. As it yields its crop of delicate, native, woodland flowers in an artificial patio context, this temporary garden confronts us with a fleeting show of beauty, under threat of extinction (by Spanish bluebell cross-hybridisation and climate change) and almost destined to be a 'museum piece' of the future. On the last day of the exhibition, Sunday 29th April, the public is invited to help plant out the Bluebells when the artist donates them to nearby Hackney Downs. Australian born Penny Sadubin has lived and worked in London since 1996 and graduated from UNSW College of Fine Art in 1994. ‘Patio Projects' is WW Gallery's rolling public art programme on view 24/7.
