A dream of a relic
Jane Watt's cool immaculate egg has found a home in the Great Churchyard. The response is written by Nadia Embleton.
Jane Watt is a visual artist based in Suffolk. She has made installations and site-specific work in rural and urban locations for over twenty-five years. Intrinsic to her practice is an interest in developing partnerships and collaborations with people and place resulting in often playful and unexpected interventions. These include changing the London skyline with a hundred artificial birds on a Hoxton Gallery roof, a UV light installation in Helsinki, creating a temporary camera obscura for the Festival of the Garden at Westonbirt Arboretum, getting hundreds of people to dance under magenta spotlights in forgotten corners of north London and using one of the earliest photographic processes to record Cambridge residents' curious objects as artist in resident at Darwin Green in Cambridge. She is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at University of Suffolk. www.janewattprojects.com Instagram @janewattprojects

I am an artist and the curator for grove and groving. This blog is groving online, and records the artworks placed on the streets of Bury St Edmunds along with responses to the work by commissioned writers.
