Filling the Hayward's sculpture park with water isn't a novel idea — it was flooded for Psycho Buildings in 2007 — but the re-opening gallery's new show, The Edges of the World, takes things a step further: they're inviting people to swim in a jerry-rigged heated paddling pool overlooking the South Bank. The show, by Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto, opens this Saturday, and also features "immersive, sensory installations", but it's the pop-up pool that will grab the headlines. Entry to the pool is free (though you'll have to pay for the gallery entrance), but must be booked in advance by contacting the gallery.
