Kingston Navigation Wheel: Paul Farrington

Walking Tours with Designer Paul Farrington
May – June 2012

The Stanley Picker Gallery has  now kicked-off its No Competition! programme  – taking place off-site whilst the venue itself is closed for refurbishments – with  the Kingston Navigation Wheel, a special revolving cardboard disc that maps five new cultural walking trails around Kingston on the themes of Bridges, Death, Muybridge, 3 Fishes and Made Here.

Throughout May and June the Kingston Navigation Wheel’s creator Paul Farrington of Studio Tonne  is leading special walking trails around the town, following the routes on the Wheel itself, with residents and Kingston visitors already  finding many new and unusual features about the town, including  viewing the site of the original wooden bridge  across the Thames and discovering a  small museum hidden within a funeral parlour!

Further tours with the designer are scheduled for 1pm and 3pm on the following dates:

Wed 23 May 3 Fishes Walk
Sat 2 June Bridges Walk
Sat 16 June Made Here Walk & Death Walk

Free copies of the Kingston Navigation Wheel are also available from The Market House, The Rose Theatre, Kingston Museum or Kingston University’s Knights Park Campus Reception.

Kingston Navigation Wheel forms part of No Competition! a programme of free off-site events exploring the relationship between art and non-competitive sport, with new commissions by Paul Farrington, Ian Whittlesea and Charlie Murphy  staged at sites in Kingston, in central London and online whilst the venue itself is closed for refurbishments.
