Alexander Costello, winner of the Ambulatory category of Sculpture Shock 2014, is now mid-way through his 3 month residency and is getting ready for ‘Making Progress’. ‘Making Progress’ uses the absurd to challenge the public’s conception of ‘progress’ itself, 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, location to be announced!

The performance will take place from 4 – 7 September 2014, and we will be announcing the performance route shortly!
