Haffendi Anuar and Jesse Wine to create pieces inspired by Asian columns and Henry Moore for new development
Two sculptors, Jesse Wine, who was born in Britain and is based in New York, and the Malaysian artist Haffendi Anuar, have been announced as the joint winners of the first commission to create major outdoor sculptures for the Battersea Power Station development.
Wine’s work will echo the reclining figures of Henry Moore, who showed work in nearby Battersea Park, but will include cups, sandwiches and flat caps to suggest a tea break of the power station workers. Anuar will create a site-specific series of columns, traditionally used across Asia to raise dwellings such as fishermen’s huts above the water.
