Bhajan Hunjan: making work in response to Stephen Turner’s Exbury Egg

Bow Arts artist Bhajan Hunjan is currently working with Stephen Turner’s Exbury Egg. She is responding to the presence of the Egg at the Lakeside Centre and to that aspect of the Eggman’s approach to making work using natural materials.

Bhajan’s installation will be unveiled at part of the Estuary Festival over the May bank holiday weekend 29-31 May 2021.

By interacting with and collecting natural materials from the local Thamesmead environment, Bhajan will unveil her new installation in the Egg for the Estuary Festival, using techniques of threading, arranging, rearranging, picking, pricking, stitching, knotting, tangling and untangling.

Over the Covid period she has been looking at the concept of ‘healing’ and will use herbs from the Monks’ garden at local Lesnes Abbey, as part of the installation. Join us to learn more about the local flora and fauna of Thamesmead and perhaps take away your own healing herbs!
