Maria Haralambidou didn’t mean to set up an award-winning social enterprise in one of Africa’s most deprived countries. The way she tells it, a series of happy accidents have led her to where she is today. But four years on from its conception, People of the Sun is thriving, with a new collection in collaboration with the Dutch designer Ineke Hans chosen to be part of Brompton Design District’s ‘Other Stories: Alternative Perspectives on Design’ programme during the London Design Festival. Back in 2013, with a stint at the prestigious Architectural Association School of Architecture in London under her belt and working on slick residential projects, Maria set off for Africa for the first time. The previous year, while studying for an MA in creative economy at Kingston University, she was…

the tangerine test

BRUCE MCLEAN is repeating himself. Not in his conversation, certainly, which freewheels from Bernard Leach to Love Island. (He’s equally baffled by the success of both.) Nor is he averse to doing things he hasn’t done before, making Land Art, performances and films in the 1960s and 1970s, painting prolifically in the 1980s, and testing his ideas in printmaking, books, theatre, metalwork and even bathroom design along the way. But one work keeps coming back; his ‘number one hit’, as the Glasgow-born artist wryly describes it. In Pose Work for Plinths (1971), a series of black-and-white photographs based on an earlier performance, McLean contorted himself into ‘impersonations’ of iconic sculptures: a Henry Moore, perhaps, or when threatening to lose his balance, an Anthony Caro, one of his teachers at St…

ON A HOT JUNE DAY in 1933 Nancy Tree and her husband, Ronald, while leisurely motoring through Oxford shire, stopped to picnic in the grounds of Ditchley Park. As they sat on the grass, Nancy in a backless yellow dress and picture hat, they were transfixed by the handsome 1722 James Gibbs mansion in the distance, and finally could not resist asking to see inside the house. The door was opened by the butler, who was ‘as old as God and wore an illfitting red wig’. He informed them that the owner, Viscount Dillon, had recently died and the house was to be sold. They walked into the entrance hall, one of the grandest rooms in Britain, and though it was somewhat dilapidated, the beauty of its William Kent interior…
