DOGS at Clissold Park by Kazusa Onoe
The Clissold Park, Hackney, London, installation of DOG on Saturday 31st July 2010 was very successful and very popular. the images on this page come from the Japanese blog contributor and photographer Kazusa Onoe. As one of the DOG Stewards at the installation she was able to observe the sculpture throughout the day. Her photographs provide an idea of the scale of this work and some of the forms the artist manages to create within the installation.
Almost everyone who attended spoke highly of the work and participated to the full. People spent a long time walking around the DOGs and reading the messages of hope for the future contributed to the installation by over 500 children in local primary schools.
An example of some of the hundreds of messages of hope from the children. There are more on this blog and in time all of the messages will be here on line.
Kazusa has captured here a wonderful image of the DOGs stretching off into the distance.
And as we look at this image we can see how the artist's placement, the inter-relation with landscape and the strong form of the sculptures all combine to produce combinations which
present different viewpoints.
