Launch: Sun 3 May 2015, 12noon – 2pm
A dazzling new structure took up residence in the Bearpit. Part-sculpture and part-shelter, Philip Cheater’s design was inspired by old pavilions and bandstands, as well as the Bearpit’s previous hexagonal landscaping. Decorated with hazard-graphics, Pavilion juxtaposed the visual language of warning with a warm invitation to gather, to meet and to celebrate – reflecting changing attitudes towards the Bearpit itself.
Pavilion was created by Philip Cheater in collaboration with Eifion Porter.
Groups and individuals are invited to hold their events in Pavilion for free. Get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
