Featuring Fons Americanus, a 13-metre tall working fountain inspired by the Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, London. The piece, by American artist Kara Walker, has been made using recyclable or reusable cork, wood and metal, covered in a non-toxic acrylic and cement composite, avoiding the use of large quantities of non-recyclable materials and harmful substances often found in the production of exhibitions and installations. The artist is best known for her use of black cut-paper silhouetted figures, referencing the history of slavery and the antebellum South in the US through provocative and elaborate installations.
