At The Launch of “Secret Ingredient” feat. Nicola Anthony
The opening reception for British artist and writer Nicola Anthony’s latest solo exhibition was held on 14 October. Guests were greeted by a wave of words penned in turquoises and blues as they stepped through our glass doors.
Installation of text art handwritten by Nicola during her many trips down
These words were actually the secrets and confessions gathered from the public through the confession slips we left at the shop, face-to-face confession sessions with Nicola or from submissions online.
