skySCAPE / Podia
skySCAPE, April 2012
Redstart Arts and APT Gallery were commissioned by Lewisham Council to create a Podia under the theme of ‘Everyone’s a Winner’ as part of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic commemorations. Cash and Lewisham based artist Chris Marshall created sculptural figures based on silhouettes of and designed by Redstarts expressing a moment of achievement. The sculptures were then positioned on the rooftop of APT Gallery. This served to both give a sporting champions podium effect to the work as well as render it as public art. The route of the DLR from Lewisham to Greenwich, one of the major routes to the Olympic venues, was chosen specifically to provide panoramic views of skySCAPE.
