Subodh Gupta – “When Soak Becomes Spill”

In October we had the pleasure of working with the artist Subodh Gupta and the Victoria & Albert Museum on both the fabrication and installation of “When Soak Becomes Spill”. The 6m high sculpture will remain on Exhibition Rd, SW7 until 31 January 2016 as part of the V&A’s India Festival.

On receipt of the pre-fabricated bucket, Mtec worked closely with the artist to create sections of welded utensils, which had been shipped from India. These sections were then welded together by our team ready for installation on-site. Working directly with artists from the conception of an idea, through to fabrication, shipping and installation is an exciting process and something we always relish the chance to do. This process has been captured in the above film (commissioned by the V&A) which shows our team at work both at our storage facility in Ware and during installation on Exhibition Rd.

As always we’d love to see your images with “When Soak Becomes Spill”  so be sure to tag us (@mtec0) or use the hashtag #mtec0
