Generously funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, with support from Vauxhall Gardens Community Centre, CLS Holdings, Martinspeed and Neal’s Nurseries, Wandsworth.
Pleasure, a neon sign positioned on the roof of the Vauxhall Gardens Community Centre, was a beacon for the Centre and for the historic Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens below.
Produced by Studio Long & Scenografika, both studio tenants at the Centre, the sign was an expression of the enjoyment taken in all the Centre has to offer and a nod to the wider recreational activities that have been and continue to be enjoyed in and around the gardens.
The plant boxes in front of the sign were embedded with evergreen shrubs common to coastal and cliff top environments; the light and plants visible to the local live/work community and to railway commuters.
