Turkey Street Artist Commission, Enfield Borough Council

Deadline: February 27, 2012, 12:00 pm

Turkey Street Artist Commission, Enfield Borough Council

Turkey Street Station is located in the Turkey Street ward within the London Borough of Enfield. The station is situated opposite Waltham Gardens Open Space, and adjacent to Turkey Brook. Capital funding has been allocated by Enfield Council for improvements to the station forecourt and the open space opposite as part of the Council’s ongoing Gateway Project. The Gateway Project is a environmental improvement scheme to enhance the gateways into the London Borough of Enfield.
The Redevelopment and Environmental Works Group, Highway Services, Enfield Council have developed a new landscape design for the site. The proposal incorporates several key features including improved footways, lighting and landscaping to create better access routes and offer improved safety for pedestrians.

An innovative piece of public art which will form a focal point for pedestrians walking along Turkey Brook is sought to complement the landscape improvements. Enfield Council invite you to register your interest in designing this focal point, which will be permanently displayed at the site.

Artists are invited to submit an initial expression of interest by sending in up to 8 images (slides, CD ROM) and a list of recent work together with a CV and artist statement.  They also are required to complete the Tender Questionnaire which will be evaluated on a pass / fail basis.
Upon passing this initial assessment the project team together with an arts consultant will then short-list three artists.

Please submit your expression of interest by 12:00 on 27th February 2012, either on a cd or as a hard-copy to: Kimberley Hall, PO Box 52, Highway Services, Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield, Middlesex, EN1 3XD
