Battersea Gasholders pop-up exhibition
National Grid is dismantling the four disused Battersea gas holders to make way for much needed housing.
Local school children from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, John Burns Primary School, Griffins Primary School and St George’s Church of England Primary School visited the site and learnt about its history and engineering and then worked with professional artist Amy Jayne Hughes to create drawings and sculptures interpreting what they had seen and learnt. A pop-up exhibition is open to the public two days a month across July, August and September 2014. Also on display are a series of industrial portraits by specialist photographer Ben Murphy, who was commissioned by National Grid to take shots of each gas holder dismantling.
10am - 1pm
