Hanna Haaslahti has now moved into the Sculpture Shock studio to begin her HISTORIC residency. Haaslahti's residency will culminate in an installation for the Ionic temple at Chiswick House and Gardens. Designed by Lord Burlington, the small temple is like a miniaturised version of the Pantheon in Rome and it originally housed Burlington's three Roman statues until they were moved to the Exedra. The surrounding landscaping is roughly circular in form with grass terraces stepping down to a circular pool with an obelisk at its centre. This self-contained garden is full of references to antiquity and the stepped terraces are reminiscent if a Roman theatre. The Ionic Temple, not normally open to the public will showcase the installation, created by Haaslahti in early December 2015 .
AMBULATORY winner William Mackrell's Sculpture Shock intervention Gaps, glitches, and speed bumps popped up on central London's No. 9 bus route from Thursday 10 September to Sunday 13 September 2015. Gaps, glitches, and speed bumps was the culmination of his three month residency in the Sculpture Shock studio and attempted to activate the potential of ‘Ambulatory’ as site specific language from the live and nomadic setting of London’s bus network.
