Artist Aaron Head’s new public artwork ‘Even a Stopped Clock is Right Twice a Day’ has been installed on Ford End Road.

The project is one of our mini commissions. Throughout the month of November the usual adverts posted at a billboard site in Queens Park will be displaced. Instead there will be a large photograph of the scene concealed behind its structure. The resulting effect is an image that in parts subtly joins up with the scene occurring outside its border.

Aaron will also be leading mini tours of Bedford, highlighting and discussing the use of public signage within the town. Part psychogeography, part ‘tourist’s trail’, the walks will combine objective and subjective knowledge, historical notes and anecdotal musings. The tour will culminate at Aaron’s mini commission on Ford End Road.

The tours will take place on Saturday 3rd & 10th November 2-3pm, starting from Bedford Creative Arts’ HQ at 104 Midland Road. They are free, but places are limited, so please book in advance on our events page.
