Tales from the Exbury Egg

Saturday 29 February (2-3:30pm) at Thamesmead Library

Stephen Turner will tell stories about his remarkable Exbury Egg, which feature in his forthcoming book ‘All from the Egg’. Stephen’s Exbury Egg – which is currently installed at Bow Arts’ Lakeside Centre – was originally made in 2013 for the artist to live in for a year on the Beaulieu River, exploring our relationship with nature. After sharing stories from living inside the Egg, Stephen will answer questions and discuss his experiences with the audience. Finally, Stephen will then take visitors next door to the visit and see inside the famous Egg itself.
