Self has created a large-scale bronze sculpture of a seated figure which she hopes will inspire conversations about taking up space in public. It’s also an invitation for people to take a seat and experience a moment of calm amidst in the busy Coal Drops area in King’s Cross.

The sculpture will be accompanied by a new film and visitors will be able take a piece of the project away with them as Self is creating two new limited editions inspired by the piece – a series of 25 bronze sculptures and 12 silk screen prints exploring domesticity and what it means to ‘take a seat’, to take part in this universal gesture of leisure and tranquillity.
