    ‘Colonnes Pascale’ consists of objects from Africa, Morocco and China – everyday enamel, terracotta, ceramic and metal pots – vertically stacked in six-metre columns. The work is characterised by its playfulness, but also asks questions about the effect of hunger on the African continent. The striking installation by artist Pascale Marthine Tayou was in place at Claridge's lobby from September 27 to October 12, over the period of the Frieze Art Fair 2016.
