Across the Weekend
Installed in Kensington Gardens
& East Point Pavilion
Drawing inspiration from George Szirtes’ specially commissioned poem Tidal Drag, Noon to Moon is a community-wide art installation that invites school students, artists and community groups to reimagine Kensington Gardens and East Point Pavilion as planetariums of strange new worlds.
Working across a variety of mediums including sculpture, textiles and photography, works in East Point Pavilion will be created by local secondary schools, colleges and community groups, including Women Like Us, Friends of Kensington Gardens, Otium Centre, Benjamin Britten Music Academy, Ormiston Denes Academy, East Point Academy, East Coast College Art School and Sunrise Academy.
Kensington Garden’s Sunken Gardens, will feature work from over thirty prominent regional artists, including Amanda Edgcombe, Bill Jackson, Bridget Heriz-Smith, Ffiona Lewis, Jo & Gary Hincks, Hilary Barry, Jim Racine, John Christie, John Daynes, Les Bicknell, Linda Farrow, Margaret Parsons, Martin Battye, Martin Fidler, Max Clements, Neil Hanger, Niki Medlicova, Penelope Dack, Peter Rudulfo, Roger Hardy, Rosie Winn, Sally Crowley, Simon Wilde, Spadge, Susan Brinkhurst, Tim Cross and Zoe Rubens.
Noon to Noon is part of our 2023 Festival programme which explores themes tides and oceans through its relationship to the stars and planets.
