Alan Phelan, The RGB Hyacinth – with Void Offsites – 18 June to 14 Aug

Void Gallery is delighted to announce that artist Alan Phelan’s sculpture The RGB Hyacinth will launch on 18 June as part of Void Offsites.

Phelan’s project is a crowd-sourced sculpture made by individual participants in isolation during lockdown in 2020. A bucket of supplies was provided for collection at the gallery with instructions on how to make a ‘bucket flower’. Over 60 were made and, after many pandemic related delays, the sculpture is now to be finally assembled into a 4 metre high sculpture in Brooke Park, Derry.

This project celebrates isolated-collective activity, mirroring many public health slogans used during lockdowns of ‘staying apart but working together’. The sculpture marks the shared experience of this difficult period of time.

Venue: Brooke Park, Rosemount Ave, Londonderry BT48 0HH
Dates: 18 June – 14 August
