Tara Arts, world famous in the 'Field, will be bringing the work of internationally renowned artist Oliver Grossetête to South London this Spring, as people from the local community are invited to help build a unique, temporary and impressive new tower constructed entirely from tape and cardboard. Inspired by the architecture of Gaudi Batllo House in Barcelona, the Musgum mud huts of Cameroon and the iconic Burntwood tree, this one-off design will be both realised and demolished in just one day, marking the latest in a series of work from Circulate – a London-wide network of cultural organisations established to build on the success of London 2012's cultural festival.
People interested in contributing to the build can sign up to join Burntwood school students in assembling sections of the tower, set to alter the skyline of Earlsfield over the course of just one day. The work is the latest in a series of cardboard creations by the artist whose designs have been realised all over the world, with UK projects including constructions at Glastonbury Festival (2013), Torquay Festival (2013) and Merchant City Festival in Glasgow (2012).
