The material of TAPE by Numen/For Use is recreated into a Gargoyles, Grotesques and Medieval Beasts by Mess Room Creates project and now exhibited at the Rochester Cathedral.
About this project:
Artists from Kent Association for the Blind Art Groups, Peer Arts and Deaf Peer Arts are delighted to share their exhibition inspired by Rochester Cathedral’s Medieval Bestiary project in partnership with [Dr] Diane Heath and Martin Crowther from the NLHF Medieval Animals Heritage project at Canterbury Christ Church University.
MESS ROOM worked with students from St Nicholas Primary, St William of Perth, Kingfisher Primary School and Chatham Girls Grammar School to create a collection of fantastic beasts. MESS ROOM is proud to re-use elements of TAPE by the international award-winning designer, Numen/For Use. TAPE was a fully immersive gigantic cocoon-like installation made entirely from tape recently installed at The Historic Dockyard Chatham as part of A+E Lab’s ALT*MED Festival.
MESS ROOM CIC is an inclusive arts studio based at Sun Pier House, Chatham, where people can express themselves creatively, using a combination of activities and communication methods, including British Sign Language (BSL).
Thank you to all the artists, volunteers and partners.
This exhibtion is part of MESS ROOM Creates, a project supported by Arts Council England.
