Cool Car Park
Bold Tendencies, a not-for-profit commissioning organisation based in Peckham, is staging a series of exhibitions led by Richard Wentworth’s ‘Agora’, which is a painted abstract design that covers the entire floor of a car park roof.
Using Johnstone’s Aluminium Paint, the exhibition is designed to reflect the changing weather conditions the roof is exposed to, unifying and activating the spectacular roof space through the summer months.
Johnstone’s Aluminium Paint is a solvent-based, protective metallic finish that can withstand temperatures up to 150ºC. In addition, its brilliant lustre has the added benefit of solar reflective properties.
Richard Wentworth said: “I came across Johnstone’s Aluminium Paint by comparing it with others. Not only is there a great pleasure in applying Johnstone’s, but there follows a double reward. It both delights the eye and resists the feet. Four fifths of art is entirely practical. I welcome Johnstone’s as part of the final fifth.”
