South Bristol 360
South Bristol Community Hospital
Simon Grennan and Christopher Sperandio were appointed to create a series of new artworks for display inside the new South Bristol Community Hospital, aimed at linking local residents with the hospital.
Grennan and Sperandio proposed to produce twelve circular blue-and-white images depicting favourite views of South Bristol as captured through the artists’ research and meetings with various local groups in January and February 2012, as well as through views collected via their blog at www.southbristolfavouriteviews.com .
The chosen blue and white palette refers to the local eighteenth century ‘Delftware’ pottery that was made in great quantities at Water Lane, on the boundary of Hengrove and Brislington in Bristol.
The artworks are permanently mounted at eye level around the new hospital building and were installed in August/September 2012.
Working on behalf of Ginkgo Projects, Suzanne has project managed South Bristol 360 from artist selection (the artists were selected through an open application process) to project delivery.
