Colourful geometric panels and positive messages brighten the bamboo structure of the See Through pavilion, which designer and artist Morag Myerscough has installed in a park in London.

The pavilion, which straddles a path through Grosvenor Square, was created to uplift passersby and offer safe outdoor space for people to enjoy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Myerscough’s design responds to the impact of lockdown on the public and the resultant increase in people spending time outside and in nature.

多彩的幾何面板和正面信息為透明亭閣的竹子結構增光添彩,設計師和藝術家莫拉格·邁爾斯庫夫(Morag Myerscough)將其安裝在倫敦的一個公園中。

該展館跨越格羅夫納廣場(Grosvenor Square)的小徑,旨在提升行人的視線,並為人們提供安全的戶外空間,以供人們在Covid-19大流行期間享受。


“Our worlds have closed in and we have time to reflect and be engaged in our lives in very different ways,” London-based Myerscough explained.

“We have had time to appreciate the here and now, connect back to nature, and take a slower pace,” she continued. “Outside spaces are safer places to be and so we need to occupy them and bring unexpected joy back to the everyday. The structure is a response to these new times.”


她繼續說:“我們現在有時間欣賞這裡的時光,回歸自然,並以較慢的速度前進。” “外部空間是更安全的地方,因此我們需要佔用它們,並給日常生活帶來意想不到的歡樂。這種結構是對這些新時代的回應。”

See Through is one of 11 pavilions built by artists as part of Wander Art, an outdoor art trail in London curated by Alter-Projects and hosted by Grosvenor Britain and Ireland.

Each artist was given a selection of sites to choose from, with Grosvenor Square being Myerscough’s first choice due to its size, openness and natural surroundings.

See Through是藝術家作為Wander Art的一部分建造的11個展館之一,Wander Art是倫敦的戶外藝術之路,由Alter-Projects策劃,由Grosvenor英國和愛爾蘭主辦。


The pavilion’s size is dictated by site constraints: its height of four metres satisfies planning guidelines, while its width accommodates the path over which it is built.

Its open form was designed by Myerscough to offer a playful, skeletal appearance, while also minimising enclosed space for visitors’ safety.

“The piece was commissioned in the midst of the pandemic so it was important it was not an enclosed space, as much air circulation as possible,” Myerscough told.

“There are many ways to enter and walk through the artwork, which was important so that people can keep their distance, but at the same time allowing several people to enter at one time.”





See Through is the first pavilion by Myerscough that is built from bamboo – a sustainable plant known for its naturally fast-growing and renewing properties, but also its strength and flexibility.

The bamboo canes are fastened together with cable ties and impermanent fixtures, ensuring both their stability in use and recyclability at the end of their life.

See Through是Myerscough的第一個涼亭,它是用竹子建造的。竹子是一種可持續發展的植物,以其自然的快速生長和更新特性,以及強度和柔韌性而聞名。


The phrases on the graphic panels that decorate the pavilion are drawn from Myerscough’s notebook, within which she has written various words and sentences over the past year.

“I was listening and watching a lot of news and screen heads talking continually at me over the last year and I felt an urge to write down phrases and words that I heard, plus some I was thinking and observing myself,” Myerscough explained.


“在過去的一年中,我一直在聽和看很多新聞和屏幕提示,不斷地向我說話,我渴望寫下自己聽到的短語和單詞,以及一些自己在思考和觀察自己的事物,” Myerscough解釋說。

“Collecting words and recording thoughts and moods in different forms throughout this pandemic year has taken on a stronger meaning in my work,” she continued.

“Everything feels heightened and I feel a need to express my thoughts and experiences as they are not individual thoughts and experiences; they are collective, as this is the first time in my lifetime and many others that we are all experiencing the same thing at the same time.”


“一切都變得更加強烈,我感到有必要表達我的思想和經驗,因為它們不是個人的思想和經驗;它們是集體的,因為這是我一生中的第一次,而我們其他許多人都在經歷同樣的事情。 同時。”

The decorative panels that envelop the pavilion are all made from ply offcuts from Myerscough’s own studio and will be reused by the designer in her future work.

See Through is not the first installation completed by Myerscough during the coronavirus pandemic. In Paris, she created a colourful structure that encourages people to focus on the positive changes that have occurred as a result of Covid-19, and in Leeds, she designed a billboard to thank frontline workers.

“看穿”並不是Myerscough在冠狀病毒大流行期間完成的第一個安裝。 在巴黎,她創建了一個豐富多彩的結構,鼓勵人們專注於Covid-19所帶來的積極變化,在利茲,她設計了一個廣告牌來感謝前線工作人員。
