Welcome to the Library of Litter Exhibition 

Library of Litter was in part a physical exhibition that took place in the windows of Coventry ArtSpace Arcadia Gallery 26 January - 7th February 2021 to show some of the physical work Janet created during her graduate residency. The rest of the exhibition is still taking place in the form of a soundwalk within some of Coventry's popular parks, which is running until the end of 2022.
As the exhibition took place at the deepest point of lockdown three in the UK and during a snowy period in January it was unlikely many would be able come in to Coventry city centre to see her work in the windows, so Janet has tried to share the detail in her art digitally.
