I Can Taste You on a Rainy Day GERONIMO

  1. Back

Commissioned to mark the start of the Peninsula’s 2019 Turning Tides Festival, LA-based conceptual artist GERONIMO  created  I Can Taste You on a Rainy Day; a bold, large-scale installation of 25 inflated water droplets which inhabited The Tide throughout the 2 weekend inaugural festival. Ranging from 1 to 7 metres tall, these vibrant, painterly droplets became the set to a flamboyant performance by Sink the Pink on the opening night. 

With the backdrop of the Thames (and the iconic O2), visitors experienced an exciting production like no other as sprightly queens, club kids and dancers took to the stage to announce that London’s first elevated cultural park was open.

Jihan Zencirli (b. 1985) is a Turkish American visual artist, experiential writer and performance artist, creating under the moniker GERONIMO. She is most notable for her internationally regarded ephemeral sculptures, massive in scale and conceptual scope and quoted in The New York Times as the most recognizable public artist in the US. Her work, designed to be democratic in its availability, thrives in public spaces, equally impressive on the facade of a neighborhood bodega or free health clinic as on a cantilevered Frank Lloyd Wright house or Los Angeles’s Broad Museum, also designed by DS+R. In 2018, GERONIMO was the first female Art Series collaborator with the New York City Ballet home at Lincoln Center. 

Kaia Charles, Cultural Curator for Greenwich Peninsula “Turning Tides is a heady mix of arthouse film, music and public art. Renowned artists, musicians and curators from the UK and further afield will converge on The Tide this summer to celebrate a moment of change and a new London – and it’s all free.”
