Matthew Darbyshire Sculpture Garden. Berkeley Homes Vista Development
Did you know that Battersea Park used to be a top venue for international sculpture? We still have seminal sculptures in the park by the lake, by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, but the heady days of the 1951 International Open Air Exhibition are long over. This work by Matthew Darbyshire tinifies classic modern sculpture into the props for a children's play area. From a small child's perspective the objects reclaim the monumentality of Moore's bronzes, and invite clambering and interaction.
