Artist collaboration at One St Peter’s Square

June 12, 2015

Impressive additions to the reception hall at One St Peter’s Square are two contemporary installations by prominent artist, Mark Titchner: “Live the Life that you Imagine” and “Dream after Dream after Dream”.

Commissioned by Argent, GHA and on-site art consultants InSite Arts, the works employ multi-layered gold and silver acrylic extracts of text, adapted from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden 1984 and a pamphlet published post Peterloo in 1819, The Political House that Jack built.

On the artwork, Mark Titchner said:

“My aim is to introduce poetic, resonant, thought provoking text to the site that engage with both the daily users of One St Peter’s Square and the visitors to the area outside. These texts are also conceptually tied to the history of the site.”
