About the Artwork

Franz West invited the public not only to view his art but also to physically engage with it. As the title Garden Pouf suggests, the artist intended for this fun sculpture to be treated as a functional piece of art. Installed on Undershaft in front of Hiscox and St Helen’s Church, the piece received a lot of attention from children and visitors. Franz West has exhibited internationally for more than three decades in galleries, museums and major festivals.
