2012 Bunting of Love and the Big Blanket at Festival No.6
A social art piece designed to increase awareness of the plight of those at Kalinovka whilst simultaneously reclaiming a public space as commerce-free, people-friendly zones.
The Big Blanket was rolled out at Festival No.6 as part of Rachel Newsome’s woodland arts trail. People were invited to relax on the blanket, and perhaps sew extra materials onto it. Above their heads the Bunting of Love was strung and people were asked to reflect on the lives of those people looking at the identical piece of bunting strung at Kalinovka.
Thank You, to the many people who sent in bunting for the project! Your efforts have filled the air at Kalinovka Institution with bright movement where there was nothing.
