Installation 'Salon d'Art Brut/Singulier Demin', Meysse, Ardéche.


Adam's beautiful ironwork stand
 formed the base for this installation.


Tracey re-worked elements from 'The Chapel
of Victories' to create a new chapel to exhibit her work.

December 2015: 'Stop Pub' suitcase with Court Circuit Ressourcerie.




Tracey was commissioned by Court Circuit to realise
the idea of a fold away stand promoting the arguments for
 placing a 'Nopublicity' sticker on your letterbox...















Viewers are invited to weigh a month's publicity....
on average 2 kilos of unsolicited pub arrives in your
letterbox each month.
The concept was initiated by Adelaide (behind) of the SME
-organisation responsible for the reduction of waste in our area.

Alternatiba. Limoges. September 2015.

Alternatiba is an international organisation who create events which offer ecological aternatives for living. Tracey lent a creative hand for the décor.  

A weekend of creation with Alternatiba volunteers.






The association's logo is a bicycle so bikes and wheels seemed the obvious choice for materials...





Brightening up a rainy but successful event....





The stage included some elements from my 'Chapel of Victories' installation:









Mural/installation for 'Vertigo Truth', Mutonia, Italy. July 2015.

'Vertigo Truth' is a mural painting festival that 
takes place at 'Mutonia' sculpture park in Italy. 
Tracey was invited to create an installation on an 
old lorryside which is also somebody's home.
