Weak from Dreaming – the making of


‘Weak from Dreaming’ is a site specific installation in the derelict shooting hut less than a mile from Highgreen. It’s creation will mark the Autumn equinox on September 21st and the end of my one year residency with VARC. The work can be experienced during the weekend opening of ‘Blue Hours, an exhibition in four parts’ on September 16th & 17th 2017. The design, construction and installation has been made possible due to the time, energy, generosity and vision of Khosro Aldibi and VARC.
