Natalie Low - Dwellow Submarine

Natalie Low - Dwellow Submarine
Welcome to the Dwell exhibition and book. For a whole month we will be taking each artist's page and transforming it into a 3 dimensional dwelling. Each one of these small sculptures will be exhibited in public on the London streets

Natalie Low
Today we bring long time collaborator and CollectConnect contributor Natalie Low to the fore. Natalie has exhibited with us on too many exhibitions and books to mention all of them individually. She started out as a talented wordsmith and entered CollectConnect folklore during the Brighton Open art exhibition in 2011. Her perfectly formed poem 'Biscuits' was transformed into a magnet and exhibited along the seafront. Needless to say the fruity tone of her poem elicited some choice remarks from the liberated gentlemen of Brighton.

Nice if you were my jammy dodger and I your Garibaldi.
We'd hob-knob with the Bourbons while we gorged upon Rich Tea
Love would be our digestive, a party ring our dream
our malted milk will overboil and make our custard cream

Writing isn't the only talent of Natalie Low and as well as keeping the government to task in her daytime activities she is a keen knitter, allotmenteer and most recently the inventor of the crochet onion bag. We now need to add a new string to her bow and include paper engineer. Her net Dwellow Submarine hasn't been submerged today but gently rests upon a pond in Walthamstow, London. Natalie can't resist a little wordplay as usual and the title of her Dwell page references the popular Beatles song written by Paul McCartney with lead vocals by Ringo Starr. The single was released the same year as Natalie was born and went to number 1 where it remained for 4 weeks. We hope Natalie will carry on being one of our chart toppers for many years to come.

Don't forget to have a look at the next Collect Connect project, 'The Art of Caring' exhibition at The Rose Theatre in Kingston-upon-Thames. The theme is Caring/Care and it is FREE to enter.
