Laid To Rest: Final Procession Scored By Daniel O'Sullivan

The finale of Serena Korda's Laid To Rest project, where the artist has moulded bricks from dust donated by Londoners, takes place in the capital this weekend, with a procession and a burial of the bricks at Brunswick Square Gardens. Daniel O'Sullivan has scored a marching band 'opera' for the procession, which ends with a ritual dance around a pallet of bricks. The band includes Alex Ward, Steve Noble and Chloe Hoof, among others, and the composition will be pressed to vinyl in an edition of 300, which will be given away to those attending the event.

The 500 bricks, which are each printed with information about the contributor, have been on display at The Wellcome Collection as part of the exhibition Dirt: The Filthy Reality Of Everyday Life. The march takes place 18 September, 3pm, starting from the Wellcome Collection and walking along Tavistock Place to Brunswick Square Gardens. For more information and a map head here.
