James Capper

POSTPONED: Thames Sculpture Launch: Mudskipper


Come and see the fully-mobile offshore sculpture move across water and land at Battersea Power Station pier from 16 May.

British artist James Capper unveils his large-scale mobile sculpture 'Mudskipper'. The sculpture is this year’s Powerhouse Commission, an annual commission at Battersea Power Station.

Transformed by Capper from a former 1980's commercial fishing boat, 'Mudskipper' is a fully-mobile sculpture that has the ability to move across water and land on-shore through the use of two step-type propulsion legs, offering passersby a spectacle to behold.

Co-commissioned with Nine Elms and produced by Illuminate Productions with the support of Albion Barn, Arts Council England, Hannah Barry Gallery and Thames Clipper, the mobile sculpture will engage fully with the life of the River Thames, with a series of performances on Thames beaches in May and June.

James Capper (b.1987, London) studied at Chelsea College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. He has since had works at Frieze Sculpture Park, Venice Biennale and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Mudskipper will be on Battersea Power Station pier at Circus West Village.
