Presenting a new version of The Speakers and new Gallery sculptural install, representing England in this fantastic young Biennale of the East.

Following a 1 month residency in Sura Madura commissioned by the  INSITU European Artist Abroad scheme IMG_1371 and commissioned by the CAB Colombo Biennale, I produced a new version of the Speakers Project using materials craftmanship and influences from Sri Lanka. Working with the outstanding Human Rights org Ground Views editor (http://groundviews.org/), Sanjana Hattotuwa, we tracked the Tweets and blog laparkan.com/buy-prednisone/ coverage of a very poignant protest in Sri Lanka #Weliweriya. 

This also lead to a new sculptural piece as a second commission for the Biennale in the JDA gallery, in response to images posted of riot police,  the tweet ” this is not the army we know and love” and the main cooking pot vessel.
