SURREALISM AND THE CITY
As spring comes to The City of London, City workers taking the opportunity to top up their vitamin D intake by heading outside over lunchtime might just stumble across something a bit strange.
From 1st April Dali’s famous five – foot Alice in Wonderland statue will ,ake her home outside Moorhouse – the Norman Foster – designed office development that’s sprung up on the corner of London Wall and Moorgate.
Since 1994 Alice, who is cast in bronze and was made in 1977, has been travelling the world, stopping off in Florence, Rome, Singapore and Hong Kong before ending up in the heart of the City.
The outdoor installation will be accompanied by an indoor exhibit of several more iconic Dali sculptures, plus prints and collages including Tarot Cards.
The exhibition will run until 30th June, after which Alice will leave The City for an as yet unknown destination. Interesting.
