London and The Covid Chronicle

Most of you know that I took part in the Covid Chronicle. You don't? Here is what it's about.

'The Covid Chronicle was set up by artist Wendy Bliss during the February UK Lockdown, 2021. The completed project is made up of 142 submissions from around the world, and the panels have been curated and stitched together into metre square blocks of four, making a total of 36 metres of work. The installation has been described as a ‘Bayeux Tapestry’ for the 21st century pandemic, and records personal experience in words as well as pictures: each artist has been invited to add words to support their panel for this extraordinary collection; these are often poetic or moving, and always interesting.' 

I made 2 panels for this and was finally able to see the whole tapestry in London last month, in Riverside Studios. It was an extraordinary experience to meet Wendy and also so many other artists who took part. Some travelled quite a distance to be there with us. It was a delightful evening with lots of champagne, lovely conversations, touching speeches and a great set up.

We finished the evening with a meal in a lovely little french restaurants.
