During February and March I’m delivering sessions for Art on the Underground as part of the engagement programme I have set up this year. This activity focuses on the 85-metre long billboard commission The Bower of Bliss at Southwark Tube Station by artist Linder. Earlier this week I met two student groups from Lewisham Southwark College for a tour of the commission and was joined by Linder who generously talked about her influences as well as exposing her creative processes. Feedback included:
“There’s noise at the front which matches the bold image. I like it here at the back where it’s more peaceful - visually and noise wise.”
“My students really loved the talk and exhibition. I could tell by our conversations this afternoon that Linder really had inspired them.”
This session will be followed by a free family event during the half-term holidays, along with a poster design project with Year 1 BA photography students at London Southbank University.
