groving is a new annual summer exhibition that explores aspects of Bury St Edmunds through specially commissioned works of art placed in public. People who come across the work can enjoy it, leave it for other people to see, or take it home. The theme this year is Acts of Resistance, and works will be placed around the town from 20 August to 5 September.
Writers have been commissioned to write about the artworks, and the project will be documented here and at http://collectconnect.blogspot.com/. groving is an extension of and inspired by CollectConnect, conceived by Alban Low and Dean Reddick, and I am grateful for their support.
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.
