IFO

Work: IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT is a new commission by French architect Jacques Rival and is part of RELAY, the first dedicated art programme at King’s Cross.
IFO reflects the transience of King’s Cross and the rapid changes it is undergoing. During the day, this oversized birdcage will act as public kiosk and framing device for the daily theatre of the street. At night, it will become a luminous spectrum re-emitting the energy it has accumulated during the day.
IFO will be found in and around King’s Cross, amidst the construction sites, on the top of high-rise buildings and, of course, in the sky.
On selected nights, IFO will take off and dramatically hang from the cranes constructing the new King’s Cross. During these nocturnal ascensions, the cage will reveal its bottomless structure releasing past memories and signaling the next phase of construction.
When landed, the nine-meter high cage will turn into a recreational space and invite passers-by to an intimate session on a two-seater swing.
Over its two years of travel, IFO will host with a series of pop-up activities and interventions. These events will be announced shortly on the King’s Cross blog.
IFO is part of King’s Cross first dedicated art programme, RELAY curated by Michael Pinsky and Stephanie Delcroix.

The 9m-tall Identified Flying Object (IFO) will be lifted into the night’s sky once a month for the next two years.

During the day it will travel to different locations in the Kings Cross area, ‘inviting visitors to venture inside the bars to use the swing hanging from its centre’.

The artwork will also be used to host performances, seminars and as a hospitality venue.

The work is the first installation for RELAY, an art programme created for the King’s Cross redevelopment. Michael Pinsky and Stephanie Delcroix were selected to curate the first three years of the nine year programme which intends to ‘transform Kings Cross into an international contemporary art destination’.

Anna Strongman, spokesperson for King’s Cross Central, said, ‘It’s great to have such an exciting piece of art created especially for King’s Cross. King’s Cross has always been of interest to artists and that is something we want to build on in the future with projects like this’.
