Meadows of Change
Set into original K-2 phone boxes turned pop-up mini art galleries in the heart of Arena Square, ‘Meadows of Change’ celebrates the layers of history of Wembley as an iconic neighbourhood. From its start as the small village of Wembley Green – meaning the meadow or clearing of Wembley, to its transformation into what is now Wembley Park; the artwork takes us through moments of perseverance and change in both the skyline and narrative of this unique part of London.
As meadows undulate like rolling hills across all three booths, the arc of the new Wembley shines and reflects in the mirrors behind. In the evening, the installation transforms speaking to a moment of memory as two spotlights flank either side of the artwork to represent the twin towers of the old Empire Stadium. Merging the meadow, remembering the iconic towers, and reflecting on an ever-changing Wembley, Meadows of Change reminds us that Wembley has persevered, resilient in its status as an icon of London.
