24 June – 18 September 2016
NOW Gallery, Greenwich
Make a Peninsula brick in this communal artwork commission, The People’s Brick Company. The clay will be brought back to the NOW gallery, moulded into a unique brick and stamped with the initials of the maker. The ‘Peninsula bricks’ will be left to air dry on a large rack in the gallery over the summer, forming a constantly evolving display- a production line of thousands of handmade bricks. The end products will be used to construct a large kiln firing them all in one go in a public celebration on 17th September. Once fired, the bricks will be made into a permanent folly, serving as a reminder that architecture can be simple and inclusive.
