The artist, Zaneta Belasicova, was chosen for the window commission at the brand new Newhaven Library. She has been assigned a mentor, Ashley McCormick, who is a specialist in engaging with the public in neighbourhood arts projects. They met for the first time in Newhaven, along with Sally Staples, the manager of project.
The East Sussex County Council have hired me to document a large public art project they are undertaking entitled Transparent. The Council is renovating three libraries in the County and are commissioning pieces of public art to be located at each one. The photographs that I take will be used to record the project and to help the artists to achieve a transparent way of working. The project is also ‘transparent’ in that two of the artworks will be on glass and the third will be revealed by glass.
