Love it or hate it, the redeveloped Spitalfields Market has certainly been a welcoming space for public sculpture. Off the top of our heads, we recall the giant clay pipe thing, the pointy red church piece, some mis-aligned granite blocks, a memorial to the Civil War defences and a huddle of imposing red letters – all within a few feet of one another in Bishop’s Square.
Continuing this recent tradition, eight sculptures have now been shortlisted for the Spitalfields Sculpture Prize 2010. Have a flick through the gallery below, choose your fave, then go vote here (or in person in the foyer of the Allen & Overy LLP offices on Bishops Square, where models of the designs can also be found). Voting ends at 4pm on 7 February 2010.
