With just one week to go Alexander Costello, winner of the Ambulatory category of Sculpture Shock 2014, is hard at work preparing for the debut performance of ‘Making Progress’. The culmination of his 3 month residency, ‘Making Progress’ uses the absurd to challenge the public’s conception of ‘progress’ itself. Join us as Costello, wearing a white suite and intently pointing ahead, becomes a figure head attached to the bow of a converted barge as it winds its way through the waterways of London at two miles per hour.

Save the date for the private view: 3 September 2014, 6:30 – 9pm, Camden Lock (West Side)!

The performance will take place from 4 – 7 September 2014, click here for the full the performance route and timetable!
