ACE has announced the winners of the 12 Artists Taking the Lead commissions.

A pair of 10m-high crocheted lions for Nottingham; a giant figure of Lady Godiva to be led in procession from Coventry to London; and a floating island from Svalbard, Norway, which will meander along the coast of south-west England – these are among the 12 arts commissions chosen to celebrate the London Olympic games, it was announced today.

For south-west England, artist Alex Hartley will bring an island – a chunk of rubble revealed from within the ice of a retreating glacier – from the Arctic. On its journey south from Svalbard, he will declare it a “micro-nation” and those interested will be allowed to apply for citizenship. “We will create a community,” said Hartley. “We can even have our own Olympic team for 2016.”
