Artists are finding creative ways to offer hope during the Covid-19 pandemic and Robert Lawrence has designed COVID CLOUDS as a Pop-Up art installation.
Robert is an artificer (traditional word for craftsman) and his art installation is currently displayed in his home village of Johnshaven, Scotland. However, Robert hopes to send it around the UK to any community that would like to borrow it for two weeks at a time.
There is no cost involved, but he would appreciate the cost of the postage.
Installing it is simple too, as long as there are trees. The beauty of it is that anyone with a ladder can put them up, high enough so people can't touch them (or write stupid things on them) and low enough for them to be read.
Robert has produced a short video https://youtu.be/Y8kQ0ut-UNs
More details can be found on Robert's website www.ingrainedculture.co.uk should you wish to borrow the clouds.
Attached in pdf format is an interesting article on the installation by art historian Griffin Coe.
