We are delighted to announce that Bedford based artist Aaron Head http://aaronhead.com is the recipient of our Spring Mini Commission award.

Aaron  will create a new work for a large advertising board in the town. He plans to accompany this piece with two artist led tours that discuss the visual language of public signs and displays, culminating in a discussion of the commissioned work.

Aaron’s  work  includes closely observed performances, making very short films, finding interesting objects and putting them in strange scenarios, renaming objects and suggesting new identities for them, sculpting familiar looking objects out of unexpected materials, intervening in public spaces with exaggerated versions of human acts, and making up stories.
