Separate Reality, an onyx and resin sculpture by Simon Hitchens, measuring over 2 metres high, was installed as one of the first sculptures as part of a changing programme of works. The artist states 'I am acutely aware of the historical significance that stone has as the prime material to make sculpture, and as a sculptor am challenged to make art that contributes to this debate. As a climber I have an intimate relationship with rock and that geologically it is the very material that supports us upon this planet.' Simon Hitchens is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Sculptors, an RWA Academician and the fourth generation of artist in his family.
InSitu manage a sculpture programme for the public space at 30 Crown Place, EC2, providing a platform for large scale work by recent graduates, emerging and established artists. Installations of new pieces happen at regular intervals throughout the year with the art providing a stimulus for users of the building, often challenging perceptions of what constitutes sculpture and how it is presented in public space. The programme includes a schedule of artist talks and related events.
