“Another Brick in the Wall” – brick installation led by artist Keppel Knowson in collaboration with three other UCA Artists in Residence (AiRs) 2019-2020.

This is a whole community art installation, built from bricks designed and created by the public. This is very much in keeping with the theme of this year’s craft month ‘Community Coming Together through Craft’. We aim to directly engage at least 300 members of the public of all ages through outdoor workshops with different community groups. We hope to have 500 + bricks designed by members of the public as well as bricks made by or sponsored by local businesses. These will be fired at the potteries at Farnham Potteries and then used to build a piece of public art. Keppel Knowson, one of the Artists in Residence, with a background in Landscape Design and a BA in Interior Architecture, will oversee the building of it. The idea is that this will be an on-going piece of public art with sections being built in different parts of Farnham. The project begins this year but Keppel’s vision is that it will continue to build over many years to come.

In addition to workshops, we are hoping to be offered the opportunity to have a pop-up exhibition in a centrally located empty units in Farnham. Here, we will exhibit our finished pieces, as well as showing our processes and giving Artists’ talks. We will generate additional interest through publicising the event in advance over local radio as well as inviting local television and radio to cover our events. Each of us will host workshops in agreed venues, such as Farnham Potteries. It is envisaged that there would 10 -20 places at workshops at any one time. People will join and leave at different times. All age groups will benefit from being involved in making a piece of public art.
