Some of the inspiration for the designs for the public art at St. Clements, Mile End, came through the community engagement activities. Peter Moreton of Applecart filmed some of the workshops and interviewed the artist Agnes Jones, to create this short film. It is delightful and reveals some of the stories and processes behind the artworks. Follow this link to watch – I love the two gentlemen talking about being punished when they were young and very glad that times have changed!
The designs for the artwork are currently being processed by the Tower Hamlets planning team, and will go into production in due course. If you watch the film you’ll know why this post is called ‘Hammer and Tongs’, but it could also be called ‘ouch!’ ………. or similar – any suggestions?
