New artwork 'The Health Centre's Quilt' unveiled at Tessa Jowell Health Centre
‘The Health Centre’s Quilt’, a 2D artwork by local artist collective Bamidele Awoyemi, Farouk Agoro and Livia Wang, is now on display at Tessa Jowell Health Centre in East Dulwich. The large-scale artwork, which adorns the glass balustrade at the heart of the centre’s reception area, was created to enhance the healing environment. This is the first of four site-specific art commissions that aim to promote the vital role of art in health and wellbeing.
The artists worked with the centre’s service users, staff and the local community to develop their winning design, which incorporates fabric patterns and techniques to celebrate different cultures and identities, and takes inspiration from the architecture of the Dulwich Picture Gallery building. Applied by professional sign-painters using enamel, the piece allows light to stream through, creating ever-changing patterns across the centre’s floor.
