Discover six monumental works that form a delightful walking tour around the heart of London.
Over the last two years the residents of Mayfair have been able to enjoy Lorenzo Quinn's sculptures, Give & Take III and The Force of Nature II, in Berkeley Square and in 2009 Simon Gudgeon's Isis was sited next to the Serpentine in Hyde Park. These works are joined by three further pieces by Quinn: Volare at Cadogan Place (Private Residence), Finding Love at One Hyde Park, (the new luxury private residences from Candy & Candy) and Vroom Vroom on Park Lane (opposite The Dorchester). The eye-catching Jelly Baby Family 2010 by Mauro Perucchetti at Marble Arch completes Halcyon Gallery's fabulous collection of public sculpture.
'Art in the public sphere is collectively owned. We all feel that we have a stake in the work, and maybe we aspire to own it. Offered up as it is in the adult playgrounds of our cities – our parks and squares, the places we pause to reflect and relax – it is ours to share, even if just temporarily.'
Lucy Tyler, Director of Public Art at FutureCity, curator, project director and arts writer
