When it comes
to public space, art and architecture have a symbiotic relationship: buildings
frame environments whilst art expresses identity - together expressing a unique
character and voice to all those that inhabit it.
SODA and long term collaborators ARTIQcame
together to put on an exhibition for one night only in Clerkenwell’s secret
space, Compton Courtyard. Accessed through the SODA mural, the courtyard
featured a series of sculptures, curated by ARTIQ, celebrating the relationship
between art and its surroundings.
The identity for Through the Mural was designed with the sculptures in mind,
with simplistic typography and monotone imagery showcasing the forms and
materiality of the work. The blue and green colour scheme reflects the colours
found in the mural and within the courtyard itself and minimalist icons were
used to identify the materials found within each piece and adding a sense of
discovery for the viewer.
