Liam O'Connor has been documenting the changing World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre site since demolition began in spring 2010 and will record the development of the site for the duration of the project.
See a selection of Liam's work on display in the east and west foyers of the Clore Education Centre, downstairs from the Great Court. (Access to the Clore Education Centre may be limited on certain dates.)
'My drawings are an investigation of the transformative nature of the building site, capturing the site’s constantly evolving form.
As the site changes physically, I regularly return to the drawing and work back into its surface, adding and removing certain elements as they appear and disappear. Many of these elements remain within the drawing long after their departure - therefore influencing the new forms that have physically replaced them on site.'
