Private Viewing of The Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park, London

July 5, 2015

SelgasCano's Installation

Every year since 2000, the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens in Hyde Park, commissions a temporary Summer pavilion by a leading architect. The gallery is one of the most popular art venues of London, displaying modern art and design since 1970. The criteria for the selection of the artist is that the architect or the design group had not completed a building in England at the time of the gallery’s invitation. Famous architects, from all over the World such as Zaha Hadid and Oscar Niemeyer had created very creative and fascinating installations for the garden of the gallery. Each installation is to be completed in six months and displayed for the public for three months. Last year, famous Chilean architect Smiljan Radic displayed a very interesting spaceship like installation.

Installation by SelgasCano

This year, the exhibition was designed by Spanish duo SelgasCano. The installation looks like a big colourful caterpillar that visitors can walk through. The installation has four exits, east, west, north and south.

It is colourful like any animal in nature. It reflects the colors of the rainbow. It is very creative and beautiful. I feel like this installation is more interesting than the space ship was last year.

Some critics gave a pretty bad review of the exhibit. Some said the exhibition was the “worst exhibition in the Serpentine Gallery ever” or it was a “trash bag monster”. They also called it “cheap plastic bag”. I really liked the installation and I hope that most of the Londoners will visit this beautiful art and wonder around the colourful walls.

Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party takes place around this beautiful installation in the beginning of July. It is the best party of the Summer in London. It has been significantly scaled down this year, but many topmodels showed up at the event such as Suki Waterhouse and Karlie Kloss.
