BOSCO SODI
SCULPTURE IN THE CITY

70 ST MARY AXE, LONDON, UK
22 JUNE 2022 – JUNE 2023

Sculpture in the City, the annual exhibition of contemporary art placed among the striking architecture of the City of London, launches its 11th edition on 22 June 2022. New works on show from eleven contemporary artists will be joined by six sculptures that remain in situ from the 10th edition alongside two permanent acquisitions.
This free, outdoor public art exhibition showcases works by established and emerging artists, with each piece selected for its ability to create a relationship and dialogue with the complex urban environment of the Square Mile. Comprised of different forms, mediums and sizes, the 11th edition of Sculpture in the City provides an opportunity to experience and engage with world-class contemporary public art.
Bosco Sodi was inspired to cast the damaged stalagmite sawdust-mix forms, Untitled, 2013, after saltwater damaged the majority of the contents in his pier-based studio after Hurricane Sandy hit New York in 2012. These organic bronze sculptures, on view at 70 St Mary Axe, represent creation and destruction, both of time and in nature, as well as providing a symbol of hope in response to the consequences of climate change.
