Bathing Lake
2013. Found objects. Dimensions variable

Elegy, Guest Projects, London 2013

Arrangement of found objects taken from the bottom of what was once known as the Bathing Lake at Victoria Park.

The Bathing Lake has not been used for bathing since the 1930's. During the refurbishment of the park prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics (Victoria Park was an official Olympic Site), the water from the lake was removed.

Rivero asked for a permit to enter the site, search the exposed lake bottom, and take some objects hoping to gain insight into the activities around the lake. The research was inconclusive. The water is back in the pond.
