Tunnels of Hope
,,Tunnels of Hope is public art project that was brought to fruition in 2021. The first of its kind, the brief was to brighten the mundane and often neglected outdoor area that people take for granted in order to uplift the spirits and inspire hope and change within the community.
I was selected as the primary professional artist to create site specific artworks and coordinate the project. Supported by the public and private sectors, TFL and the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham Council, I worked closely with Offthewallarts, the commissioner of Tunnels of Hope, and together, we mentored a class of age 9 to 10 year old pupils of St Peter’s C.E. Primary School to transform a subway into an art installation to be enjoyed by all.
Based in Hammersmith, the first tunnels of hope exhibition is the subway from North Verbena Gardens, W6 going towards the River Thames which launched on the 23rd September and runs until 4th November.
For this commission, I created:
- A 5.9mx1.5m piece residing on the way down to the tunnel
- A 2.15mx2.72m piece next to the entrance on the tunnel
