The Smallest Gallery in Soho presents ‘Roller Coaster’
The Smallest Gallery in Soho is delighted to present a new installation by London based artist Lise Bouissière. The title of the work ‘Roller Coaster’ is inspired by London’s cityscape and the constant cranes overhanging the city like giant insects. The sculpture is made of used straws that Lise has been collecting in London’s bars, clubs, coffee shops and tea houses. These plastic pieces of rubbish, that nature cannot digest, are transformed into blooming sculptures.
Added to this architectural inspiration, the composition leads to a wide range of other interpretations. From shape and colour harmonies, the reuse of the material and the evolution the straw is going through today with environmental discussion. As well, the once used piece of plastic by a person leaves their DNA fingerprint behind.
The artwork will be modified regularly by Lise during the exhibition, reflecting the mutation that London constantly goes through with its cityscape.
Up until December 2019 at 62 Dean Street, London, W1D 4QF!
