In spring 2012, Fuel developed ideas for this project as part of Southbank Centre’s Women of the World Festival.
Kate and Louise commissioned Lizzie Clachan, Melanie Wilson and Natasha Chivers to design an installation in the White Room at the Southbank Centre. They created a serene and unreal garden space, with spaces to relax and watch performances. We loved the smell of it, and the beautiful soundscape which punctuated the day.
We commissioned Nic Green, Malika Booker and Lois Weaver to host the installation, welcoming audience members, introducing the performances, and creating ways for people to contribute their ideas of phenomenal women.
We commissioned 15 artists to create 10 minute performance responses to a woman who inspires them and these were performed at 30 minute intervals throughout 3 days of the festival.
