The Southwalk Park Lido’s derelict and faded duck egg blue aerator fountain remains outside CGP London. The gallery building was previously the café for the 1920’s lido. The tiled entrance space is the only original part of the building left. I installed blue lighting, sun tan lotion scent, a rotating door and a wet velvet curtain into the entrance and exit of the gallery.
For the 6 hour duration of the opening and closing of the exhibition an undercover participant walked through the gallery space posing as a viewer. Her hair was continually wetand dripped on the floor of the gallery. She wore the same colour top as the door, curtain and fountain.
