The 41 Places exhibtion is now being removed. It’s been great, and thanks for all the lovely response to it. Many of the artworks are for sale. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details of any pieces.
Can I urge even those of you who think the whole event is a waste of time and energy to do one thing before it ends – take yourself for a walk. Forty-one Places is 41 true stories, installed in the places where they happened.
From the story written on paving stones outside the Brighton Centre to the “postcard” in a newsagent in the North Laine, this is a treasure hunt to help even those who were born here rediscover the remarkable city we live in – and it’s free.
Thanks also to Aby who commented below asking Brighton & Hove council to make it permament. At this stage all reactions are incredibly useful… please add feedback to the post below or send it as email.
Have you enjoyed 41 Places? Did you find many of the stories? Did you notice other people reading any of the stories? Which stories worked? What did you think of it as an artwork.
This is the last week of 41 Places. Soon we’ll be taking down the artworks and putting some of them up for sale. We worked with a variety of funding bodies – and hope to do so again. With such a large-scale piece of work it is really hard to assess the impact it has had. Any feedback you can give us on 41 Places is really useful. Let us know your thoughts. Or sign the guestbook below.
Richard Wolfstrome is just completing designs for 41 Places: 41 Books, the limited-edition book which includes his artwork, Kenny Laurenson’s photographs of Standard 8’s installations, and William Shaw’s stories. You can see a sample of it here.
Each cover will be different, numbered from 1 to 41.
