Public art commission for Leeds

We are delighted to announce that Jonathan has selected as one of a number of artists for the Situation Leeds project JUNCTION.


JUNCTION is a series of temporary commissions for Leeds City centre utilising the ubiquitous `junction box` as its canvas. Everyday we walk by these neglected metal boxes without a second thought, but now JUNCTION offers artists and designers the chance to transform these tired boxes into vibrant, intriguing and humorous interventions in street life.

All the identified boxes lie in the town centre; they form a trail that starts outside Leeds Train Station, go up Park Row, ending at the crossroads of Park Row and the Headrow, adjacent to the Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Art Gallery.

This is the first step in Situation Leeds’ commitment to raise the public art profile of the city. Over the next few years we hope to widen the JUNCTION project to other sites across the city and identify other exciting opportunities to work creatively with the urban fabric of the city centre. We believe that `the everyday`, could be a lot more intriguing, and we see JUNCTION as a first step to attract interest, support and sponsorship for further creative public realm projects that will make walking round Leeds City Centre more interesting, extraordinary and pleasurable.
