Celebrating the anniversaries of Armitage Shanks and Duchamp’s controversial artwork, Fountain 17 is an exhibition created in partnership with Hull, UK City of Culture 2017. Following on from her expertise in setting up an art and industry partnership with Ideal Standard UK, Adele was one of the advisors who consulted on the development of the #Fountain 17. The show launched at Studio Eleven Gallery alongside the celebration on Humber Street in the Cultural Quarter during @Hull2017.
I'm really excited about this solo show - I have seen many exhibitions by amazing artists such as Cornelia Parker; and seen brilliant performances at the Civic, e.g. Love Beyond Measure: The Legend Of Sohni And Mahiwal produced by http://www.alchemyanew.co.uk/

I have been working closely with the HEY NHS to design new artwork and the interior of the new Birth Centre (Midwifery Led Unit) at Hull Royal Infirmary. The brief was to design a non-institutional 'hotel like' environment to support Mums. With birthing pools and en-suites, the aim for the Birth Centre is to offer a comfortable and straight forward labour.
