Participatory Outdoor Artwork
This exciting new project was conceived as a idea to submit to the Dorset Festival Consortium for the Dorset Moon Project which is coming to Bournemouth Central Gardens, Sherbourne Abbey and Nothe Fort Weymouth in June and July 2019.
Inspired by the brief I decided to develop my idea and bring it to Open for Art previewing at Venue 60: Art with a View
Over the course of 15 days I will invite visitors to help attach 5500 recycled waterproof paper feathers to a 2.4m high set of Angel wings. There’s also the fantastic opportunity for people to ‘become an Angel’ by taking a selfie with the large scale wings in front of the stunning views over Portland Harbour from Artist Olivia Nurrishs’ hidden gem of a garden. In addition I will be running family orientated wing making workshops using recycled materials.
I'm really excited to bring such a positive, community orientated project to Open for Art and hope that you will come and join us in finding your inner Angel
