As part of the Olympic year celebrations an event has been organised called Britain Creates where designers collaborate with an artist to create a piece of work.
Paul Smith collaborates with Charming Baker to create an aluminium cast sculpture of a mouse holding up a very large bicycle called ‘Triumph in the face of Absurdity’
"The piece is about life and about how humble your start is in any way. It’s not linked with money or finance, it’s to do with the fact that if you try hard and dig deep, however small you start, you can do great things… Effort is free of charge!”
See ‘Britain Creates’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum until July 29th. Entry is free!
