Sarah Sze @ Peckham Rye Station

19 May 2023 - 16 September 2023

A sculptural installation by Sarah Sze — called The Waiting Room — gives Peckham Rye Station the glow-up it so throughly deserves.

At the heart of the piece, a deconstructed globe — formed out of torn fragments of paper and cardboard, sitting within a matrix of stainless steel tubing — dances with changing images. Volcanoes erupt. Cows stand in fields. Cars wait in traffic. The mundane rubs shoulders with the extraordinary. The fragility of the structure, says Sze, represents the thin membrane of life on the surface of Earth that scientists refer to as ‘the critical zone’. But like all good art, you don’t need to ‘get’ it. Standing and soaking it up is enough.
