I recently installed a piece of developing conceptual work called i will have call you (sic) and wish to thank local entrepreneur and community organiser Brendan Conway for his ongoing support and the opportunity. Brendan had accessed an unused business space and arranged a series of events for Wandsworth residents aimed at encouraging community cohesion. Brendan’s programme runs to the end of the week and my own piece is available to view throughout. It was great to see so many people there for a talk given by historian Geoff Simmons last night. See below for details regarding the rest of the programme.
As the type of work I was showing often feels risky to share with the world, it is heartwarming to have the support and encouragement from Brendan as well as from the people who came along to the see the show, or proofread for me, or simply offered advice along the way. You can find out a bit more about the project on my website.
I would also like to say a big thank you to The Newspaper Club who printed and sponsored the newspaper element of the installation. I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I was with them. They were patient, kind, professional and the end product is excellent. If anyone is looking to make newspapers for artwork or any type of marketing I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
