The Pen Museum
Unit 3, The Argent Centre
60 Frederick Street
As part of the Museums at Night project we temporarily became part of the Pen Museum intertwining amongst the exhibits between the 15th May until 15th June 2014, covering performance art, video, live ink making, sculpture, writing and drawing. Our concept was formed around the notion of the scribe, drawing, writing and the concept of the pen. The exploration of there traditions and their places in history and in modern society. The artwork embraced the nature of the museum, juxtaposing history with contemporary examination.
