For five out of the last six years I have commissioned a major Winter Installation for King’s Cross’s popular Granary Square. The latest is elsewhere: a place to think about the world by Markus Bader and Luka Murovec of raumlabor. Pictured here also are Liliane Lijn’s 2021 Temenos and Sam Jacob Studio’s 2020 The Electric Nemeton. Originally a Christmas Tree commission, the remit has expanded into a celebration of light and collectivity that can exist beyond Twelfth Night.
The Flag Project with Company, Place continues, with iterations by Bethany Williams in 2021 and by Sheila Hicks in 2022. A circular project exploring natrual and recyclable materials, the project has brought seasonal life and colour to Coal Drops Yard since summer 2020.
With my focus on working in open air spaces I don’t curate too many traditional exhibitions these days, my last one being a show of works by Rasheed Araeen in September 2020 for the Brent Biennial in Willesden Library.
