Holding the Flame

WHAT DO WE WANT FROM STATUES IN OUR PUBLIC SPACE..?

 

This Barrel Sign is a Portal to a New Form of Statue

Installed Here in Canterbury Square to Mark the Anniversary of the Brixton Uprisings of 1981
Before the Statue arrives here, this sign will start by posing some questions to think about..

 

As we question the statues in our streets, we ask:

 

- Why would a statue be important here?

 

- What is the role of a statue for you?

 

- What more can you imagine a statue to be?

 

WATCH THIS SPACE! - A NEW AR-STATUE 2B REVEALED RIGHT HERE VERY SOON!

As one of the 81 Acts of exuberant Defiance

We will be introducing a new form of  statue for Brixton

- Right Here!

One That Breaths Life

And Speaks Her Story...

First we start with raising the questions?

"History is not set in stone, so why should a statue be?"

It is our intention that this intervention holds a torch, as a beacon and baton to pass on to the next person that we (the community) feel should be celebrated in our shared public space, offering a platform for their voice to be heard and maintain focus on addressing racial equality & injustice in our community. - So watch this space in 2022!
