Artist Billboard : ‘Pavilion of Insurrection and Pleasure : Coming Soon’ by Photolanguage (Nigel Green & Robin Wilson), is now installed at The SPACE, St Johns Road, St Leonards-on-Sea. It can be viewed from the street and is visible daily from dawn until dusk through mid November.
Photolanguage’s billboard juxtaposes a history of utopian architecture with specific, local themes of architectural heritage & contemporary urban development contexts. They re-situate one of the 1930s coastal shelters of the Hastings/St Leonards seafront by Borough Engineer Sidney Little to The SPACE, re-categorising it as a proposed ‘Pavilion of Insurrection and Pleasure’. The image involves a direct sampling of details from the surrounding built environment to simulate an architectural intervention, alluding to the billboard renderings of proposed redevelopment projects of the contemporary town scape : ‘Coming Soon’
Artist Billboard has been realised with the support of Hastings and St Leonards Foreshore Charitable Trust (Hastings Borough Council).
