Lawson Oyekan @ One Canada Square

Autonomous Resonator Twin, 1999 - 2002 - Lawson Oyekan

Wandering through Canary Wharf last weekend, I stumbled upon an exhibition of sculptures by London-born, Nigeria-raised, London-educated artist Lawson Oyekan. Entitled Global Working, the show features sculptures made over the course of the last twelve years, including some from the Autonomous Resonator Series (another part of which is pictured above). These anthill-like sculptures lurk rather incongruously in the shiny lobby of One Canada Square like earthy daleks, offering a welcome diversion from their corporate surroundings. Find out more about the artist here.

The show continues until 11th November.

Opening hours:
Mon-Fri, 5.30am – midnight
Sat-Sun, 7am – 11.30pm
(yes, really… this is Canary Wharf, after all)

Lobby, One Canada Square
