Janus

 

A series of community arts workshops in Plymouth, leading to the creation of two giant faces representing Janus, the Greek god with one face looking into the future and another looking into the past (representing transitions and doorways). I created the willow structures of the Janus heads over a week with Year 7 students at the Plymouth School of Creative Arts. The facial details and decorations for the heads were made in community arts sessions with local residents of Plymouth at the Flameworks Arts Facility, in Devonport. The faces were paraded in the Carry On Stonehouse parade on 1st November 2014, for the centenary celebrations of the merging of the three towns of Plymouth, Devonport and East Stonehouse. (Project organised by the community organisations Take A Part and Stonehouse Timebank, Plymouth, Devon, July – November 2014)
