Lydia Caprani: Invoking Curiosity Through Decorative Interventions
Hull based Artists Respond 2020 recipient, Lydia Caprani rejuvenates Hull’s street scene by creating and installing decorative tiles in public spaces. Drawing from her own designs rooted in pattern and folk-art, she also uses patterns embedded within the City’s architecture.
Through her work, Lydia aims to:
“invoke curiosity and provide a little joy to the public going about their daily routines, creating a moment to enjoy and appreciate the smaller decorative aspects of their everyday surroundings.”

This Artists Respond project enabled Lydia to spend time on design, testing materials, weather-proofing and installation techniques. Following an interview with BBC Radio Humberside, her project has attracted enormous public attention and has served as catalyst for future developments.
