Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum - The Pavilion (2023)
Tue-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 12-5pm
Located on the ground floor of the London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE showcases a series of contemporary art commissions responding, and bringing fresh perspectives to the site’s rich archaeological history.
The latest commission is The Pavilion (2023) by Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum, the artist’s first UK solo exhibition at a public institution. Inspired by the history of the site, Sunstrum explores how the public engages with archives and artefacts, and their presentation in museum spaces.
The Pavilion is a wooden structure comprising a promenade of interrelated viewing booths reminiscent of Victorian ‘cabinets of curiosities’, often considered precursors to museums.
