As part of the centenary celebrations of Estonia’s independence, the Estonian Contemporary Art Development Centre (ECADC) is bringing the country’s love of modern and street art to the British capital.
Three of the destination’s most renowned artists are currently showcasing their artworks in some of London’s most prestigious art galleries, exhibition spaces and art festivals in the capital.
Edward von Lõngus’ (R)estart Reality, permanent installation in Vauxhall
The London Festival of Architecture in partnership with Vauxhall One Business Improvement District (BID) brings mysterious street artist Edward von Lõngus – also known as the Estonian Banksy - to the London neighbourhood of Vauxhall, showcasing his augmented reality artworks on the walls of South Lambeth Place and Glasshouse Walk. London is the ninth European city to host von Longus’ augmented reality work as part of his ‘(R)estart Reality’ tour to celebrate Estonia’s 100th Anniversary. The installation involves creative and interactive technologies using an app to bridge the past and the present through creative technologies. Inspired by Estonia´s past, von Lõngus’ century-old characters travel through time and come to life with augmented reality, under the curious gaze of passers-by.
