"RAINBOW-FRIARGATE" PUBLIC ART IN HULL
25TH OF FEBRUARY - 13TH OF MAY 2011
Tsai & Yoshikawa have installed three unusual, large-scale and dynamic sculptures on an historic street as the part of an ‘Arts in Empty Spaces’ initiative in Hull City, England.
The installation, located on Hull’s Whitefriargate street and entitled ‘Rainbow-Friargate’, is in place until 13 May 2011.
The installation is the fourth in a series of artworks aimed at exploring the relationship between the streetscape and shops with the people who use it every day.
Councillor Rick Welton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Housing Strategy said: "The installation by Tsai & Yoshikawa has seen Whitefriargate become transformed by luminous sculptures. These public artworks make this important shopping street more attractive to visitors with renewed vibrancy and interest. It all goes to show how artists, not just architects, can have a role in shaping our city and the way we experience it."
