Camberwell Arts Festival Commission

A commission for Camberwell Arts Festival

I have been awarded a commission, by Camberwell Arts, to make a new work as part the celebrations for 20 years of Camberwell Arts Festival.  Twenty commissions have been awarded to artists to make work at venues in Camberwell.  I have been working with the Salvation Army Heritage Centre and have created an installation for their museum and inspired by their collection and archive.

Here's more information:

The Heritage Centre is taking part in the 2014 Camberwell Arts Festival. We will be hosting Sarah Sparkes’ installation ‘SALVATION. SALVATION. SALVATION.’ from Monday 16th June.

Sarah Sparkes has been reseraching the collections and archives at the Salvation army Hereitage centre and has created an instalation in response to these. The work will be on display along side the other exhibits in the Heritage Centre throughout Camberwell Arts Festival from 14th - 22nd June on Mondays – Thursdays from 9.30am – 4.00pm.
William Booth College, Champion Park, London, SE5 8BQ.

On Saturday 21 June the William Booth College and the museum will be open from 2.00pm -5.00pm, the artist will be on hand to discuss her work, and tea & cake will be served.

Sarah Sparkes is an artist and curator. She runs the visual arts and research project ‘GHost’ and has published on and regularly lectures about this subject. She has exhibited widely, both in the UK and internationally, and been the recipient of numerous awards and residencies. She spent three years as Artist in Residence and Research Fellow at the ‘Harry Price Library of Magical Literature’ and this has informed much of her recent work. She currently has an exhibiton in ASC Window Space and is developing work for the ‘Over Time’ project at Enderby Wharf in Greenwich. Recent exhibitions include Theatrical Dynamics’ at Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles; ‘Haunted Landscapes’ at Falmouth University, Cornwall and ‘Lumen’ at St. Clements Old Psychiatric Hospital, Mile End, London.
