A Hospital of Dolls

The show went up without a hitch I am thankful to say, although the charcoal scribbles of chosen parts of Sylvia's poems to go along side the works were a pain to go on but they had the desired effect.

Watch the video


So as you can see, Sylvia took over with the recital of "Daddy" and it all came together, everyone got some kind of chill!

Quickly doing the press shot before anyone came in, above.

Don't mind if I do, below

The weather was divine last Saturday not spits and spots of rain like today, so Montee and me decided to have a lovely walk. We heard about this mysterious floating sculpture with a cinema and beautiful Islamic art designs inside, not far from our little village, we set off on a mini adventure along the Leeds and Liverpool canal and popped on to have a look.

It was most exciting wondering when it would be in view and as we turned the last corner there it was in all it's glory. I could just about hear some kind of sound that brought us near and then it was clear it was an Ark with a house like structure, with a real grass roof!

Montee and I enjoying the video work, something happened inside though, there was such a mix of relief and excitement, I got goose bumps and a funny feeling all over, this had nothing to do with the hot weather and all the sparkley water we'd had on our wander?

A snapshot of the artist Beth Derbyshire (idea and design for the Ark) and Laura Rogers before the Ark was on its way to be packed down until used again?
