GDIF 2022 | London’s free, annual outdoor performing arts festival 26 August-11 September 2022
Island of Foam: Version XVIII
3 - 4 September | 6pm | The Tide, Peninsula Square, SE10 0ES
What to Expect: Family friendly | Great for Kids | Sensory spectacle | Speech free
Multi coloured and mesmerising, this UK premiere from German artist Stephanie Lüning will transform Greenwich Peninsula with mountains of rainbow coloured foam.
Marvel as this ephemeral installation is created live by the artist, growing, reproducing and constantly changing as it envelopes architectural features.
This sublime and entrancing transformation of public space explores the limits of painting as the artist selects and blends colours which take mountainous form and dimensions before the artwork finally disappears.
Can I bring my pet?
Unfortunately due to health and safety regulations pets are not allowed inside barriered spaces at GDIF events, with the exception of registered service animals.
Can I arrive later than 6pm?
Yes – the event will start at 6pm but you can stay for as little or as long as you like. It is a durational artwork.

Island of Foam: Version XVIII Trailer
Stephanie Lüning is a female artist from Germany. Her main focus lies on ephemeral, process based art in public spaces and on interactive based art. With these different methods and attempts she tries to fathom (play with) the generic limits of “painting” and its “open-ended” results.
