Chiswick community arts projects go on show

The two community arts projects launched by the Chiswick Timline team Karen Liebreich and Sarah Cruz in January go on show at London Auctions this week.

Chiswick without Borders

For the past three months a team of embroiderers has been working on a huge cotton map of the world created by award winning local textile artist and designer Ekta Kaul, to illustrate where in the world local people who live in Chiswick have their family roots. Ekta will also be opening her studio during Artists At Home weekend.

Chiswick in Ceramic

The second project, created by architect Svetlana Kuznetsova, is a representation of Chiswick in ceramic. She has made six local landmarks in amazing detail: Christchurch, the Russian cathedral, Chiswick Park tube station, St Michael’s, Voysey House and Chiswick House, while Kathleen Tuffy and Tanya Saunders have overseen the mass production of hundreds of tiny ceramic houses. With the help of most of the Chiswick primary schools and visitors to the Timeline launch, they have created a 3D map of Chiswick in ceramic.

You can see both these community art works on show at London Auctions, 30-34 Chiswick High Road, W4 1TE
6-10 June 2018 (10.00am – 6.00pm, entry free.)
