Bow Arts artist Bhajan Hunjan will be working with Stephen Turner’s Exbury Egg from October 2019. Bhajan will respond to having the presence of the Egg at the Lakeside Centre and to Stephen’s approach of making work using natural materials.
By interacting with collected natural materials from the local Thamesmead environment, Bhajan will create works for a new installation in the Egg in May 2021, using techniques of threading, arranging, rearranging, picking, pricking, stitching, knotting, tangling and untangling.
Bhajan is interested in how natural materials sustain and disintegrate. She envisages creating forms that are made by assembling smaller arrangements that collectively contribute towards a larger installation.
Bhajan's installation will be unveiled at part of the Estuary Festival over the May bank holiday weekend 29-30 May 2021.

Over the Covid period she has been looking at the concept of 'healing' and will use herbs from the Monks’ garden at local Lesnes Abbey, as part of the installation. Join us to learn more about the local flora and fauna of Thamesmead and perhaps take away your own healing herbs!
