Chinese Make Over for Battersea Power Station
- Art exhibition the last chance to see the famous landmark before redevelopment

Chinese Make Over for Battersea Power StationBATTERSEA Power Station goes Chinese this weekend when the long-derelict south London site hosts an exhibition run by the Serpentine Gallery.

The iconic London structure – made famous internationally by the album cover to Pink Floyd’s Animals (pictured) – will feature a variety of modern Chinese art in Turbine Hall 2, one of the power station’s huge former turbine halls.

"There are very few places as exciting in terms of size as Battersea Power Station," said Hans Ulrich Obrist, the curator-at-large of the Sepentine.

"The exhibition will be the last opportunity for people to see this space before it is redeveloped, to discover the many vistas one cannot see from outside."

Multi-screen video art, sound-scapes and installations are set to vie for the attention of visitors. The exhibition is open from 8th October – this Sunday - until the 5th of November. Tickets are priced at UKP5.
