The Exchange, Commercial Street,
S1 (A-Z p5 1H)
Black and white painted boards
infilling the windows at ground level of this fine building. Each painting
depicts the face of a child with the professions that they would choose
for themselves, written in a facsimile of their own handwriting underneath
it. The children came from various schools in the city. The project formed
part of Donnelly’s final year Degree Show work while a Fine Art student
at Sheffield Hallam University.
Self-generated. The artist negotiated
with English Partnership, owners of the building.
The building is scheduled for
renovation. This piece will remain here until building work commences.
Update October 1999: this has now started and the panels have been removed.
