"I Know Something About Love"

Thursday March 17th, 2011

6.30 for 7.00 pm at Parasol Unit, 14 Wharf Road, London, N1 7RW

A walk around the 'Jardin d'amour' maze installation by Yinka Shonibare MBE

Elizabeth Eger - A talk on 'Jardin d'amour'

Reitha Pattison - Reading from 'Some Fables'

£3 / £1.50

Important: As the capacity for the event is limited, please book in advance by emailing Charlotte Jones at or calling on 020 7490 7373 ext 20. Please be aware that if you haven't booked in advance and turn up on the night, this is fine but please be aware that if capacity is reached then you may not be allowed in.

Join us amid the Jardin d'amour, a large verdant maze installation which visitors can walk around, and which in the centre features three arrangements of headless aristocrats, though dressed in batik-style fabric - Elizabeth Eger will essay the labyrinth work to hand and its 18th century implications, then Reitha Pattison will read from "Some Fables".

We will be gathering in the gallery foyer from 6.30 to 7, allowing time to wander around and get lost in the installed Jardin d'amour maze. Then we will retire upstairs to the events room for Elizabeth Eger's talk on the Jardin followed by Reitha Pattison's poetry reading.

Hope to see you there amid the maze, beside the decapitated rococo lovers. There will be chairs to sit on, & 'Interior Ears' for all attendees...
