The Hammersmith & Fulham Council have recently presented their second installation of public art in the town hall.
Working in partnership with the Hammersmith Business Improvement District, the new piece, ‘Beacon’, is on display in the atrium of the town hall extension. Created by artist Nicolas K Feldmeyer, Beacon is made from 396 lengths of string, which amounts to a total of four kilometres’ worth of string!
“We are determined to make H&F the most progressive borough for the arts in London,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration.
“And while H&F is already a cultural leader with institutions such as the Bush Hall and Fulham Palace on our doorstep, we hope our public art installations bring a bold new dimension to Hammersmith.”
Patricia Bench, director of the HammersmithLondon BID, said: “We are proud to sponsor the Beacon in continued support of the council’s art strategy. Culture is a key part of our mission to make Hammermsmith a more attractive place to live and work.”
