Alexander Costello’s Making Progress - Schedule and Mooring Locations

As the culmination of his 2014 AMBULATORY Sculpture Shock residency Alexander Costello attached himself to a converted canal barge as a modern-day figurehead. Costello made his way down the waterways of London at 2mph from Camden Lock to Tottenham Hale whilst wearing an impeccable white suit, and pointing intently ahead towards a questionably greater future. Costello’s idea of progress resided at several centimeters in front of his constantly pointed finger. The full performance timetable can be seen below.
