Tied to Tracey

People, it seems, have wildly conflicting opinions about public sculpture and how it dovetails with everyday life. This use of Tracey Emin's bronze 2005 piece Roman Standard, however, could be considered resourceful and cheeky at the same time (who knows though if the bicycle owner was even aware of the bird perched on top?). Emin's charming work features in Great St Helen's: Sculpture Space, a show of seven sculptures by artists Michael Craig-Martin, Angus Fairhurst, Dan Graham, Thomas Houseago, Julian Opie, Yayoi Kusama (and Ms Emin herself, until January 2013). The project is a collaboration between the City of London Corporation and local businesses such as Hiscox and British Land.
