The piece, Shack Stack, is Richard Wilson’s first permanent installation in London. It is positioned in the central square of the new Grosvenor Waterside development. According to Futurecity Arts, who organised the piece, “Wilson’s sculpture will examine the history and future of the scheme by using physical references to the new architecture. Constructed from cast aluminium panels, the work will comprise of three large sculptural forms which will appear to have been dropped into the square from a great height. The grouping of objects will appear to be some kind of settlement, the plane of each structure will be comprised of an idiosyncratic mixture of building materials; monolithic versions of improvised buildings.”

Gatwick Group used a 66tm Hiab XS 700 Hi Pro to deliver and install the three pieces that make up the installation. Gatwick said, “We were asked to install the sculpture on behalf of MDM Props of South London, who were commissioned by the artist Richard Wilson to bring his ‘Shack Stack’ piece to life for an arts project called Chelsea Future Space.

“The project is a collaboration between The Chelsea College of Art and Design, Futurecity Arts Consultancy, and the property developer, St James Urban Living, who are part of the Berkeley Group. The Grosvenor Waterside development  at Chelsea Bridge has a central courtyard which provides a showcase exhibition space for the alumni and staff of Chelsea College of Art and Design, as well as creating a talking point for the residents.”
