A Shrine to Dissent

A Shrine to Dissent is a participatory and accumulative installation work, which builds through social drawing events that focus on the dead’s dissent: a gift to the living. The shrine will begin as a geodesic skeletal structure, massing into a collective shrine made from participants’ drawings and assemblages. Finally the shrine will be socially dismantled in a Drawing Exchange ceremony where participants can swap and barter their drawings.

The drawing events will focus on the value of dissent. Looking at political, social dissenters whose non-agreement to the status quo or living ‘misfit lives’ enabled greater freedoms to the living. Drawing events will include a Thames drift, visits to Highgate East, Cross Bones, Bunhill Fields and Abney Park cemeteries and social drawing back at the shrine.

Thursday 30th Oct to Sunday 2nd Nov: 11 am–6pm – Drawing at the Shrine

Throughout the festival, visitors to the Shrine to Dissent will be able to make their drawn offering.

Howl away the hours descending to dusk with a walking drift from one special site of the dead dissenter to another. Bunhill Fields, a former burial ground and now public park, was once known as ‘The Campo Santo of Dissenters’ and favoured by Nonconformists. It famously contains the graves of John Bunyan, William Blake and Daniel Defoe and many more radicals. We’ll walk through the city to find Crossbones a site of non-conformity and local importance where a memorial gate pays dues to the paupers and prostitutes buried within.
