Abundance London has chosen a new artwork to be installed on the railway embankment wall at Turnham Green Terrace piazza. The unveiling will take place on Sunday 13 December at 1.00pm. The W4th Plinth art project was launched in September 2019 with an artwork by Sir Peter Blake. It offers a temporary space for large scale artworks which is displayed on a blank railway wall, as part of the refurbishment of the piazza area at Turnham Green Terrace. The project is run by Abundance London, a local community organisation which runs volunteer environmental and horticultural projects around Chiswick. Sir Peter Blake now sits on the selection jury to choose new artworks.

No public vote for this unveiling

Dr Karen Liebreich MBE, one of Abundance London’s organisers, said:

‘The jury spent several happy hours sorting through the submissions and finally shortlisted three works of art. Usually we would hold a public vote to choose between these images. However, given the strange times we are living in and the constraints imposed by Covid, we have decided instead to display each of these works for six months. This will enable each work to be enjoyed by Chiswick consecutively, giving all the artworks their chance to be seen.

‘Come along for the great unveiling next Sunday. (Socially distanced, of course).’
