Memories of the Market

Memories of the Market was a film screening held on the 7th June at the Lost Theatre in Stockwell, London.  The screening was part of the London Festival of Architecture and focused on the theme of memory. Outside the theatre colourful fruit and vegtables from New Covent Garden Market were available for guests to enjoy.  I nibbled on strawberries and peaches.  The series of artworks I created inspired by the Market were exhibited on the stairs leading to the cinema.  Just below my works, a garland of carrots and vegtables decorated the stairs.  The film comprised of ten mini documentaries …

Filming in the Studio

I am collaborating with Chocolate Films to create a short documentary as part of the 1000 Londoners project.  This exciting program creates a unique digital portrait of our city.  It offers an insight into the lives of 1000 people who consider themselves to be Londoners, taking in all ages, religions, race, income, interests and opinions.  Each week, a profile of a Londoner is posted on the home page.  The profile contains a 3 minute film that gives an insight into the life of the Londoner, as well as their own personal photos of London and some answers to crucial questions …

In the current Capability Now Exhibition the ground floor of Orleans House is devoted to historical material and social context in relation to …

Transplanting the Flower Market

I keep returning to New Covent Garden Flower Market.  However, with the forthcoming move of the Market to a new building in October 2016 I feel now is the time to move the project forward. I have continued to research the history, people, politics, locations and buildings of the Flower Market.

I used to see the Flower Market as a landscape of flowers in …
