“Concrete Liaisons” 2006 – a light-based installation by Jane Boyd

From dusk to dawn (15.30—8.30 hrs) every night from 7 to 23 December, the east and west faces of the Senate House building in Malet Street, London WC1, will be illuminated with images from other buildings.

This project, called Concrete Liaisons, is the creation of the internationally acclaimed artist Jane Boyd, and will visually address the question of what agencies are embedded in the architectural fabric of our environment to enable us to construct a sense of place and identity.

Jane Boyd is currently looking at the way we use public places around London particularly those designed by Charles Holden whose work, including many Underground stations and the central campus of the University of London, has become part of the psycho-geographical framework of millions of people over generations living and/or working in London

You are invited to the opening of this major public event on:

Date: Thursday 7 December 2006
Time: 18.30 - 20.00hrs
Venue: University of London, Senate House (in the Cloisters under the tower), Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
