This installation piece was created as an offering to the space and the people who visit Left Bank. By creating these two pieces to sit together, to create one installation, I wanted to invite the viewer to consume the historic nature of this space and part take in a culinary thanks.

Space – Inspired by English gold angel coins (first produced in 1465) I wanted to create a bespoke angel touch piece coin that embodied Left Banks’ patron saint when the space functioned solely as a church – St. Margaret of Antioch. Using these bespoke touch pieces, I wanted to create a hanging hoard as an offering to this saint.

People – As pilgrims to Left Bank, visitors make their journeys to this space under different guises – to think, to make, to learn, to eat, to socialise and to celebrate, with this in mind I wanted to create an assemblage of objects that embody this notion of travel, experience and learning; the scallop shell.
