» Javelin

For the Javelin, we put on a sociable evening sculpture competition, where artists (solo, or in teams of up to 4) competed to produce the most interesting or ambitious sculpture – using only mini-javelins (aka cocktail sticks) and marshmallows.

Talking Birds took over a room at Coventry Artspace, as part of the Artspace Hijack on Friday 20th July and built a tent fit for a fiercely competitive boutique salon sculpture competition.


As you might expect, there was judging (via twitter of course - thanks to Dan Thompson aka @artistsmakers) and a host of wonderful no-expense-spared medals and cups for the winning entries.
