Christian Boltanksi and Bob Belam

Christian Boltanksi makes art from old clothes. And if you can’t get to Paris, why not visit Waltham Forest?

There are old coats and anoraks, once-fashionable things and shapeless things, bright cardigans and children's sweaters, tatty jumpers and forlorn skirts – a rag-picker's field or the last day of the spring sales.

Talented local artist Bob Belam is a big fan of Boltanski. Why not drop by and see Bob's new installation From my sofa I can't see any problems at all.

And don't miss Bob's Never-ending-crap installations, which can be viewed across the borough. These are just a few samples from Cleveland Park Avenue, Morland Road, Milton Road and Mission Grove; for more, check out the full catalogue here.
