We are delighted to launch Sculpture Park Hill with its inaugural and only permanent work 'Park Hill Plinths' with a new limited edition 'Untitled 0868 0009 (blueprint)' by artist Keith Wilson.
The high definition, black and white image described by the artist himself as a ‘curly-wurly’, is digitally printed on archival white paper. Taken from a roll of negative film, this image must be one of Wilson’s most interesting works about which he has said the least. It is partially overlaid by a screen-printed blueprint-coloured disc, referencing the shape of the plinths that now define Park Hill’s landscape.
Wilson’s 'Park Hill Plinths' consists of five concrete discs positioned across this 3.5-acre landscape. The design of each plinth references an aspect of Park Hill’s characteristic topography: the 3.18 m diameter is equal to the building’s modular grid, the concrete is made using the same mix, and the various heights reference the estate’s incremental levels. The artist’s decision to lay these five plinths like a ‘footprint’ over the landscape could be viewed as both a territorial gesture, claiming the future use of the landscape for artistic purposes, and a generous gesture, giving a platform for what is yet to come.
