Man and Van North London looks at Islington’s Art Work
Man and Van North London was astounded when visiting Islington recently. Man and Vans is London’s original light removal and man with a van service. We could not believe our eyes as we drove past Higbury and Islington tube station last week. Man and Vans was providing its reliable and competitve service, in the North London borough, when it was confronted with 50 volunteers covered in blue and tied together with ribbon, tracking the path of a long dried up river.
This living artwork, which Man and Van North London deeply admires, is entitled Walbrook and has been created by 39 year old artist Sharrocks. This follows on from her 2006 work, Drift, which saw her sharing an inflatable boat with individuals in a deserted swimming pool near Man and Vans base in South London. This time more than the hardworking staff of Man and Van North London were taken back bythis spectacular piece. One commuter, who found herself dressed in blue and amongst the volunteers, as they cascaded down upper street, was taken by the flow of this living artwort.
The Indepedent reported the event and even commented on Man and Van North London stunned reaction to the event. Columnist Simon Usborne wrote, in his article Art that goes with the flow, how newspaper sellers, city workers and the staff of Man and Van Islington were stunned by people being a river.
