South London gallery Hannah Barry opened Bold Tendencies lll last night on the rooftop of the Peckham Rye multiplex. In the sweltering heat there was not a better place to watch the sundown over the London cityscape in the custom built bar, surrounded by monumental sculpture from a who’s who of the South London massive, including jotta One To Watch Theo Turpin.

jotta was lucky enough to get an exclusive preview of the installation of the show which invited young artists from around the Peckham Camberwell area to create "monumental" site specific scultpure which responded to the structure and surround environemnt of the carpark.

The images here are from the wek before the opening, jotta filmed up and coming young artist Theo Turpin installing hishuge diving tower, as well as the opening last night.

The car park which is normally deserted and uterly eerie was last night amock with flocks of young artists, no doubt just some of the many collectives took part including Off Modern, Lucky pdf, Sunday Painters and Matthew Stone.

Stay tuned for the exclusive installation film.

14 – 20 JULY, open daily 12noon – 6pm Level 10 , Peckham Rye Multistorey Car Park, 95A Rye Lane SE15 4ST
