Pointing to You

FullSizeRender-19Rivelino // You // Cast bronze painted in white // 2015

This year has been dedicated to further strengthening cultural awareness between Mexico and the United Kingdom. While Mexico is celebrating the Year of the UK, the UK is celebrating the Year of Mexico. A striking sculpture of two enormous white fingers pointing at each other was created by contemporary Mexican artist Rivelino for the Year of Mexico and is located in Trafalgar Square. You are encouraged to stand between the pointing fingers, forcing you to think more critically about equality. After all, the fingers are pointing at you, so you must decide what you are going to do to make a difference.

Feeling creative? Strike a pose, selfie style, with the fingers and upload it on the Lodgeo app to win a trip for two to Mexico!
