About the Artwork
Pittu Pithu Pitoo, a large-scale rock sculpture made of fibreglass and a garden ornament, literalises the state of being on the periphery, or on the other side – as both a source of agitation, and a means of perceiving the world. The architectural intervention, typical of Barclay’s installations, is driven by this state of anxiety. The viewer is invited, or perhaps forced, to consider how objects can determine our experience in space; Pittu Pithu Pitoo is about negotiating barriers, whether structural, psychological, or both.
Pittu Pithu Pitoo was commissioned by South London Gallery.
