Kingston based artist Marcel Schreur saw his sculpture take a third prize in the prestigious London Art Biennale. 120 artists from 40 countries gathered in the Chelsea Old Town Hall last week to celebrate the gift of art. Thousands people flooded into this beautiful venue and impressive art exhibition over the course of 5 days. The show was opened by the Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea, Councillor Mrs. Elizabeth Rutherford.
Schreur says about the work: "Nowhere to hide" is a 2 meter statue mirroring the fragility of life and the moment in time when every single one of us finds out that we can not hide ourselves behind anything. That we have to face ourselves. Do we stay and contemplate its meaning or do we run and hide behind the bushes from this existential and universal truth".
