De Fence Artists
“From the moment we’re born our hearts are invaded By the myths and the values of conquerers faded. Give back to your heart the territory they stole. Have faith in the native beliefs of your soul.”
- Warwick’s poem engraved on De Fence
In 2015, artists Tim Burke, Tony Steele and Tilly Davey conceived and found supprt for this meaningful community art project. The vision was a large, outdoor, timber sculpture that incorporated the voices and visions of a artists living with mental illness. They hoped, together with the participants, to create a visual expression of recovery journeys, incorporating images inspired by their past, present and future. And that's what's on show today. Have a chat to them.
