Philomena Francis: mo’lasses lll Window Commission

05 Dec-05 Jan 2008

The first window commission at Rivington Place

Iniva has commissioned Philomena Francis to create an installation in treacle to occupy Rivington Place’s expansive front window which overlooks Rivington Street in Shoreditch, London.
