A Kent Cultural Baton Project
Collaboration with artist Rosalind Barker
The Farningham Hobby Horse Project was a response to an ancient horse fair once held in the centre of the Kentish village of Farningham.
Villagers and businesses were invited to collect a wooden pro-forma hobby horse and return it in a form that represented them or their work. Responders ranged in age from 9-90 years old and the resultant installation of 150 horses replicated the village as it traveled.
The Farningham Hobby Horse Project toured Kent during 2010 – 2012, venues and partners included:
- The Folkestone Triennial Fringe
- The Lone Boat Project
- The Margate Squall
- The Kaleidoscope Gallery
- Bluewater Shopping Centre
- and other Kent Art Venues
