Living Portrait

Date: 2020 to 2022

Location: Braybrook Community Hub

Materials: Pasted paper prints, plastic miniature figures


Working with artist David Wells and fabric artist Catherine O’Leary, the Living Portrait was a community interaction set up in the foyer of the Braybrook Community Hub.  Visitors would be waylaid by either David or myself and encouraged to have a chat and get dressed up.  In most cases we would dress them in a theme related to the stories they would tell us of their past.

The red thread linking the portraits symbolises the connectedness of community.
