Es Devlin, Come Home Again, 2022

In a career than spans more than 25 years, Es Devlin has made her name creating immersive artworks and dazzling stage sets for the likes of Kanye West, Adele and Beyoncé. Her latest large-scale public artwork, described as an illuminated choral sculpture, is about London’s endangered species. Commissioned by Cartier, it takes the form of a sliced dome and is covered in Devlin’s intricate drawings of each of London’s 243 priority species, including moths, birds, beetles and wildflowers.

On select evenings at sunset, London-based choral groups of the diaspora will perform choral evensong from within the illuminated sculpture. It also features a recording of the animals’ names and QR codes within each of the choral tiers that provide more information about the priority species, choral music and London Wildlife Trust. ‘Dome originally meant a home,’ says Devlin. ‘The works invites us to see, hear and feel our home, our city as an interconnected web of species and cultures, to learn and remember the names and sing those under threat into continued existence.’ Come Home Again will be on display from 21 September to 1 October 2022 in the garden at Tate Modern.
