Random International will debut a new permanent commissioned work, Self and Other (for the Albert Embankment), on the Albert Embankment Plaza during Art Night, a free contemporary art festival taking place July 7 in London. This will be the first permanent, public, outdoor worked Random International has created in the United Kingdom, and is one of twelve projects organized byRalph Rugoff, the director of the Hayward, for the festival. This "responsive sculpture translates the onlooker’s full-length, moving reflection into light, captured within large layers of glass," and will be activated with performances by Wayne McGregor Studio during the Art Night festivities.
Art Night will take place between 6pm and 6am along a trail running from the Hayward Gallery on the South Bank through Vauxhall and Nine Elms. For more coverage on the event, visit The Art Newspaper.
