From 1st to 5th October, I will be undertaking a public art project in the Parish Centre of St John's (St John's Road, Seven Kings IG2 7BB). I will publicly customise and decorate a four drawer cabinet to create a piece of conceptual sculpture that will be exhibited at St John's over our Patronal Festival weekend (5th - 7th October). This unusual public art project will involve photomontages, constructions, and paintings.
This project is a precursor to Visual Dialogue, which will be open on: Friday 5th October, 6.30 – 10.00pm; Saturday 6th October, 9.30am – 5.00pm; and Sunday 7th October, 12 noon – 5.00pm. An opening night reception will be held from 7.30pm on Friday 5th October 2007 featuring: my newly created conceptual sculpture; photographs by Rodney of the public art event; and meditations and images from my earlier collaboration with fellow artist, writer and priest, Alan Stewart. All are welcome to the reception.
