2018 Ambitions – Launching ‘Scents of our Time’

One of my ambitions in 2018 is to launch and exhibit ‘Scents of our Time’ – a body of work that that uses scent and candle making to explore social and political issues. Each candle will be a comment on a particular current event and I’d hope to cover a variety of topics. The aim is to reveal the capacity scent has for narrative, expression and contemplation. I have made 5 so far, and the issues covered include Brexit, climate change and terrorism. I’m currently looking for potential venues to exhibit this body of work, so if anyone knows of any suitable venues let me know!
