PHOTOS WANTED: #MyBarlowMoment
Written by Haus der Kunst,
Be inspired by Barlow's sculptures and walk through the city, capturing your very own Barlow moment on camera. Then post your favourite picture on Instagram using the hashtag #MyBarlowMoment.
The artist Phyllida Barlow has always been interested in building materials and urban cityscapes, and London’s countless construction sites continue to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for her artistic work. Subsequently, Barlow’s sculptures abound in basic elements and forms that are ubiquitous in the urban environment.
With our interactive “MyBarlowMoment” action, we encourage you to stroll through your city with Phyllida Barlow’s eyes. An overflowing trash bin, a view of an enormous construction site, an overturned fence or upended flagpole? In the peripheries of everyday urban life, we encounter objects, constructions and architectural structures that often recall the artist’s sculptural formal language.
Let’s go: We look forward to your viewing your photos!

More about Barlow’s sculptures
With her monumental sculptures, Phyllida Barlow explores and pushes the boundaries of mass, height, and spatial volume in a playful and humorous manner while reflecting on our relationship to the urban environment. She employs industrial products and everyday materials to create her art. Many of the materials she uses are of low value, even waste products, or are available from conventional home improvement retailers or construction material suppliers (wood, plaster, cement, paint). Construction sites, cordoning tapes, pipes or safety nets prompt her sculptural work.
