The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee #PinkDifferentJen
You can now see the 117 artworks of our artist Jennifer Abessira in Central London, thanks to our partner The Crown Estate. They explore 70 years of archival imagery of the reign of the Queen.
Her Majesty The Queen is the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.
MTArt Artist Jennifer Abessira is known for her use of pink that she uses to celebrate and highlight either banal moments of our daily lives or historical instants that shaped a whole generation. The pink wave across the full installation represents the mighty ocean’s restlessness. It also represents faith, hope, and joy even in the deepest of troubles. This element symbolises vastness, depth, and continuity. The use of yellow here comes to reinforce the reference that the artist makes to the Bauhaus movement, one where all the arts and crafts were equal and were for all.
