Thank you Arts Council England & Lottery Ticket-buyers for funding for my next exhibition and public events “Who We Are Now’
‘Who We Are Now’ is built upon ‘The LastWish Project’ and is inspired by ideological challenges around life and death, art, culture, and the funeral industry. 25 of the coffins will be designed by people across England to celebrate diverse observations and provocations questioning ownership, authorship, taboos, values, traditions and cultural practices. They will be shown at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on Mexican Day of the Dead, Halloween and All Souls day this year, then carried through to the Oratory for installation.
This is for the launch of DADAFEST SEE https://www.dadafest.co.uk/.
This is a hybrid project between art and business. Our coffins will be available for purchase later this year. It designs, manufactures and employs locally where possible.
keep and eye out for the call out for ideas. Meanwhile I’m going to try to keep an update on this blogsite for those of you who are interested in following the development in more detail.
