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 (, Sanjana Hattotuwa, we tracked the Tweets and blog 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.
