Nunhead Art Trail at Aquarius Golf Course

I was recently ask to show some work as part of this years Nunhead Art Trail.
The venue was unusual. Tucked away in South London is the Aquarius Golf Club. This 9 hole golf course sits atop a still functioning Victorian reservoir built in 1901.

I chose to gather together a collection of items relating to the local story of the Beast of Brockley. This story is closely linked to an ongoing artwork project of mine i.e. my long term house-guest and friend Bosci (whose blog you can find a link to here). I'm representing the display here for those who didnt get to visit the venue in Sept. 2019. Key pieces were the amazing victorian diorama from Hatcham College collection and an original drawing by John Ruskin.
