Neon Invitation

V&A, London, 2015


Neon sign conceived and designed as part of the exhibition All of This Belongs to You.

The giant sign – 17 meters across, framing an arch in the grand entrance of the V&A – was designed as a reminder of what it means to be a public institution and a public space. The V&A is an extension of the public realm, a space that is warm, dry, free and where all are welcome. But beyond the collections, the exhibitions, and the scholarship, what is a museum really for? Can it be a place of debate, of politics, of collective thought? If all of this belongs to you, what are you going to do with it?

Fabricated and installed by Neon Circus.
