Murmuration is an installation that has been hand-crafted by the Lewisham community and curated by artists Annika Cox and Alice Burnhope.
Across our year as London Borough of Culture, monthly creative challenges were launched to inspire mass creativity and positive change. If the year has taught us anything, it’s that the people of Lewisham are incredibly creative. From music to gardening and architecture to poetry, we’ve seen skills across all kinds of art forms.
Led by Cockpit, this project celebrates craft and making. Cockpit, based in Deptford and Bloomsbury, is home to over 160 of the most exciting makers and designers working today. A voice for making in all its forms, Cockpit stands for the transformative power of craft to shape a better world.
Inspired by the African proverb “When the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind”, the installation explores themes of connection, migration, belonging, creativity and a symbol of the people of Lewisham coming together.
Murmuration has been commissioned by The Mayor’s London Borough of Culture in partnership with Cockpit
