The Navigator, Hays Galleria



This scuplture is inside Hays Galleria, itself a rather nice shopping and eating arcade just by the London Dungeon (and a lot of other places you've seen here).

What isn't obvious is that the paddles turn, oars swing and water sprays down like rain. David Kemp is the artist of the piece. He works a lot with found object, and his works seem always to contain humour.

What a fun piece! I checked out the "works" link and his work has humorous names too - f.e.. "cage for exercising demons".

Excellent, i love it. It looks like something from Wacky Races! Where's Mutley?

Interesting! I'll be in London next week and if I have time, I'll try and see the galleria and this sculpture.

Makes me think of the Niki de Saint-Phalle foutain sculpture in front of Beaubourg (Paris). It is not the same style but it turns too and it interacts with the water, it works on the same principle.
