Step inside Pangolin gallery and it’s like being outside again.

A sculpture garden has been created inside the gallery, complete with a massive sculpture of a snails and a rather aggressive looking tree. But alongside these works is a whole host of vegetation and grass — and the keen eyed visitor will spot some butterfly pupae.

The gallery specialises in sculpture and this immersive exhibition is the perfect setting to showcase some of its artists, from the angular works of Lynn Chadwick to the graceful marble curves of Almuth Tebbenhoff.

Sculpture isn’t just limited to the gallery, and the entire building of King’s Place and its immediate surroundings is home to a full blown sculpture trail. Just pick up the guide at the gallery and try to locate all of them.

It's an often an under-appreciated genre, sculpture, and this is a great chance to get your fill.

Sculpture in the Garden is on at Pangolin London, King's Place, 90 York Way, N1 9AG until 9 July. The sculpture trail is a permanent feature. Both are free to visit.

For more sculpture trails try The Line, the Paddington Sculpture trail and the Broadgate Art Trail.

The back of the gallery has two butterfly pupae — see if you can find them. Image courtesy of Pangolin London
