Canalology: Jenny Rolfe - Herbert

Canalology: Jenny Rolfe – Herbert

My work is about exploring places and encouraging viewers to take notice of the often ignored beauty of the in-between places, to stop for a moment and to simply be in that place. I do this by making text works, with a poem like quality that refer to the place in which they are displayed.

I believe the canals in Tottenham to be a very peaceful, beautiful, and unique area in London that many people are yet to discover.

My next step is to visit the area for a full 8 hours and write the text pieces during a walk along the canal. I’ll be stopping at timed intervals to explore different points along the route.
