'Sometimes when I hear the birds sing I think my mobile phone is ringing'. Czech artist Tomáš Vanek collects observations such as this in the Centre's stairwell using his characteristic stencils and spray paint. Based at Delfina Studios and working at Camden Arts Centre, he has been extremely active during his three-month residency, part of a bilateral exchange with the Theatre Institute, Prague.
Specially made note books of stencil works are held in the reserve collection of Swiss Cottage Library. From 15 September you can request to view the works at the loans desk of the Sir Basil Spence-designed library, a short walk from Camden Arts Centre.
A wall-mounted glazed display case will be installed in the neighbourhood close to Delfina Studios, London Bridge. Since 1998, with the Prague artist group ‘pas’, Tomáš Vanek has organised street exhibitions for local people. Contact the Centre for further details.
