I'M STAYING, Neon, 550 x 20 x 80 cm
Leadenhall Market, London
June 2018 - March 2021

I'M STAYING will remain on show in Leadenhall Market, London, for Sculpture in the City Edition 9

I’M STAYING is a neon sculpture which was originally commissioned in 2014. The sculpture travelled around the city of Bristol, UK moving quarterly for two and a half years, with each location determined by the Bristol public voting online and suggesting new locations. The I’M STAYING project has since expanded and produced multiple artworks, including prints, screen-printed t-shirts, stamped currency, videos, photography, surveys and paintings. Each of these pieces attempts to explore the varying discourse generated from the neon and its movements. The artist has begun to develop new works in response to the Sculpture residing in Leadenhall Market.

Sculpture in the City Edition 9 includes: Kevin Francis Gray, Do Ho Suh, Michael Lyon, Leo Fitzmaurice, Nancy Rubins, Salvatore Arancio, Lawrence Weiner, Nina Saunders, Patrick Tuttofuoco, Shaun C Badham, Marisa Ferreira, Nathan Coley, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Jyll Bradley, Clare Jarrett, Reza Aramesh and Elisa Artesero.
