In February 2013, Nick Hornby and Sinta Tantra launched a collaborative practise with a site specific exhibition at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf.
The first exhibition of 2013 in Canary Wharf’s Sculpture at Work series in the Lobby of One Canada Square shows new collaborative sculptures and installation works by rising stars Nick Hornby and Sinta Tantra. For the first time they are making pieces together, a radical development in their practice as artists. – Ann Eliott, Curator.
Future projects include work in the public realm as well as more intricate studio works
