I was excited about taking part in the mental health awareness event: Mind/Body? in the Shepherds Bush Library. As an artist enjoying showing work in public spaces, outside of art galleries, I believe that a public library is an amazing space to encounter new, diverse audiences.
The Shepherd Bush Library occupies a modern building, with glass walls. It was posing a challenge how to exhibit an artwork. But as they say, a problem is an opportunity in disguise. I used the windows as light boxes, framing and spacing the work. I was a great opportunity to show the new work, and to talk to people during making collages.
