Event description

Description

The ‘Crowded Room’ project is a truly collaborative process which uses contemporary art practice to celebrate the importance of the individual and their place in the community. Tim Mann, the artist, uses different aspects of the human form to record an individual’s presence within a large-scale portrait. The resulting work of art demonstrates that whilst each participant is different, in terms of appearance and character, as humans we are all integral to the world and are fundamentally all the same.

Tim Mann is a professional visual artist who works almost exclusively with the figure to celebrate the human. Having trained at Norwich School of Art, he has worked both in the UK and overseas for the last 28 years. Tim has delivered the ‘Crowded Room’ projects in locations around the UK and Ireland and the latest, ‘Crowded Room Stamford’ was a huge success, which saw more than 6,200 people taking part in his largest project to date. A short film about ‘Crowded Room Stamford’ can be found on You Tube at https://youtu.be/3JggHzsLNgs

Tim also creates additional works of art during a ‘Crowded Room’, using participant’s hands, markers or counters to complement the main portrait.

Tim’s ambition is to take the ‘Crowded Room’ project into different areas of Wisbech to celebrate each individual and their place within a community. He recognises that, whilst everyone has somewhere that they call home, sometimes circumstances dictate that they have to move and become part of an alternative community, whether on a temporary or permanent basis.
