Redbridge Tube stations to receive individual artwork by Chigwell-born artist Mark Wallinger

09:00 08 February 2013

Every Redbridge underground station will be receiving a unique artwork by Chigwell-born artist Mark Wallinger.

The London-wide installation Labyrinth features 270 enamel plaques with monochrome patterns symbolising the ancient mazes with a single path.

Mr Wallinger chose the symbol to represent the journey taken by thousands of people from each station.

He said: “The Underground has been part of my life since childhood.

“It’s surely every artist’s dream to create a permanent work that will be encountered by so many of people and this opportunity is especially close to my heart.

“The journeys we take on the Underground are unique to each of us. I hope Labyrinth can perhaps reflect that individual yet universal experience.”

Mr Wallinger’s work has featured at prominent international galleries and museums and he was awarded the Turner Prize in 2007.

Labyrinth is part of the London Underground’s 150th Anniversary celebrations.

The first works were installed on Thursday in central London stations and continue through the network over the coming months.
