Trēow of Time, Larry Achiampong & David Blandy at UCL East


For their first permanent sculpture commission, Trēow of Time, Larry Achiampong and David Blandy engaged in conversations with UCL academics and responded to the landscape surrounding the new UCL East campus. They have created a hyper-real installation inspired by 3D video gaming and their time spent between the natural and virtual realms. The work was conceived during the Covid-19 pandemic, and it reflects on a time of collective re-discovery of nature as a source of healing and wellbeing, whilst simultaneously highlighting inequalities that exist in access to green spaces.


Marshgate is part of UCL East, a new world-class UCL campus located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
