What Lies Beneath, 2022 by nikkita morgan
This piece is part of a triptych of embroidered artworks exploring symbolisms relating to political, economic, and human rights concerns. What Lies Beneath portrays the hierarchy and corruption. It also symbolises our crumbling society and how we are controlled and deceived by powerful elites. This piece also implies how the roots of humanity are endangered due to the destruction caused by the World’s leaders and how society is spiralling out of control.

PEACE Camp, 17th August 2022 - 20th August 2022 by Harriet Hill
Location: Beaconsfield Gallery, Vauxhall
I am collaborating with the Mobile Feminist Library in a four day “Peace Camp’ event at the Beaconsfield Gallery in Vauxhall, London that responds to the current exhibition of paintings by Monica Sjöö and the 40 + years since the beginning of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camps.
On Wednesday 17th I am building a 'Watch Tower’ as part of the Peace Camp installation with the Mobile Feminist Library in the Beaconsfield yard. 12 - 5pm
Thursday 18th 2 - 4pm and Friday 19th 12 - 2pm I am organising two short PEACE Walks. These will be walks to and from the Gallery in P.E.A.C.E. letter costumes. I still have places on these so please COME AND WEAR A LETTER with me. The costumes are comfortable, the walks about 2.5 miles long, up to 2 hours and we will be talking to people we meet along the way about PEACE.
If you can come, email me for more info or look on the website and let me know which day you are available:
Friday 20th I will be part of a discussion about “The Imaginary of Greenham Common” led by art historian Alexandra Kokoli
