10 Feb Colombo Art Biennale
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 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.
