Project B: sebilj 2008

Led by artists Françoise Dupré and Dr Myfanwy Johns in collaboration with architect Sabina Fazlic and participants from the Bosnian Cultural Centre-Midlands (BCCM). Project B: Sebilj, is a Birmingham-based transnational collaborative public art community project referencing the functionality of ornament and its transformative quality on architectural space.

Between November 2007 and June 2008, participation, dialogue and interaction lead to a proposal for a contemporary interpretation of Sarajevo’s Sebilj (the famous public fountain and kiosk shaped landmark in Sarajevo). Traditional craft techniques and Bosnian design were transformed through digital technology into concepts for architectural design. Sebilj was exhibited as part of the New Generation Art Festival in 2008.
