Last month Ellie Harrison was invited to be resident artist at Artsadmin's festival Two Degrees, which aimed to explore the relationships between art and activism, climate change and the 'cuts'.
One of her contributions to festival was to produce a series of four of these Early Warning Signs (pictured above). Designed to mimic those you might find outside a garage, the signs were installed along Commercial Street in London for the duration of the festival from 12 - 18 June 2011.
Whilst in residence, Ellie decided that it was quite absurd (not to mention hypocritical) for an environmentally-concerned artist to produce such expensive and permanent objects for the sake of a one-week festival. So, in the interests of her new mantra 'reduce, reuse, recycle your art', she decided to make it her mission to find new homes for the signs so that they could continue 'promote' their cause long into the future.
ADOPT A SIGN!
DEADLINE: Friday 16 September 2011
Please do forward on these details to arts organisations / galleries you know who might be interested in adopting a sign.
