07939 340 345
Stela for Foreign Bodies plays with scale, form, and material. From the micro to the macro ; aiming to merge everyday and complex meaning whilst evoking thoughts on physical terrain, atomic landscape, memorials, excavation and artifacts. The work encourages the viewer to reflect upon the quandary between things timesgone and things timesnow.
The sculpture contrast both decay and new life. Seeds planted within will germinate and sprout new life as the other materials decay over time exposing a treasure trove of the detritus of humanity. The debris was swept from the streets of The London E8 area and from a farm barn floor In Hooe, East Sussex. Sweepings include : teeth, cigarette butt, human hair, plastic straw, manure, London clay, plastic toy parts, dog hair, broken glass, lolly pop stick, screw, feather, plum stone and more.

As we navigate a changing world with constantly shifting boundaries, we need to take on board new possibilities on all levels: physical, psychological and spiritual.
The London Group and Friends present an outdoor exhibition of art works from around 20 international artists. The show explores the process of transformation; be that of matter, ideas or self-perception. Questions of how we interact with nature and our environment, with each other and with our egos will come alive with this feast of art in the spacious gardens of St John’s Waterloo. Artists are responding to the challenge of dousing hell with high water and having fun along the way. You might walk past a milk teeth ‘Scream’ by Paul Tecklenberg or get entangled in Jane Eyton’s jellyfish; you may look into Clive Burton’s eternity hole in the ground or be puzzled by Vanya Balogh’s interactive performances. David Redfern recycles the cross and some mysterious old resin cups have made their way from a Polish forest.
