French-born graphic artist Camille Walala has brightened London’s NOW Gallery through her signature Tribal POP style. Walala X Play is an interactive installation of zigzag paths, spiral mazes, suspended mirrors, and stripes that welcomes visitors to explore and enjoy the extensive network of play.
Perhaps the cleverest part of this installation is an imaginative puzzle which lures the solver to determine the differences between two identical images. Referencing the waterways of the Greenwich Peninsula, the curve of the Thames, and the shape and angles of the building – Walala brings this concept to life in three-dimensional space.
“We love having colour in our gallery space; it glows through the glass and resonates on Peninsula Square. Camille Walala is the queen of colour, and her patterns will create another world for all in NOW Gallery,” says Jemima Burrill, curator of NOW Gallery. “We are creating a playful place where – as is in our past exhibitions – we give people time to linger, digest, and unpick puzzles giving space to let the installation resonate.”
