Just announced: the Emergence Commission

Visitors will be greeted by a new large-scale installation at the fair’s entrance: Can you smell the petrichor or is it just the blossoms?  which will be unveiled to celebrate Hampstead’s 10th edition commissioned by Affordable Art Fair in collaboration with Arts SU (the students’ union for University of the Arts, London). Created by artists Victoria Yeo and Pei Yi Goh, the impressive 10×10 metre installation explores man’s relationship with nature as we emerge from the pandemic, and is made up of a series of steel mesh sculptures, covered by over 250 handmade flowers, each made from recycled plastic bottles.
