Faces of Regeneration E17

sculpture parade




Faces of Regeneration is a sculptural project developed in response to the community led campaign Save our Square against the planned redevelopment of Walthamstow Town Square in East London. The sculpture consists of 22 objects portraying the key people involved in the decision-making process that shaped the current plan for the square. The portraits are made from mattress foam and old socks and tights stuffed with duvet filling. Mounted onto a large-scale diagram the portraits are grouped to form a diagram of the institutions they represent and their interconnections. The piece questions the privilege of the decision makers over the residents to determine the future of a space that most of the decision makers will never physically inhabit.

Faces of Regeneration E17 was part of the E17 Art Trail in July 2021.and it was shown as part of the AoMO conference in Liverpool in 2022.
