Chris Ofili's 'The Caged Bird's Song' on BBC Imagine

Dovecot’s recent tapestry collaboration with Chris Ofili will be featured in Imagine on BBC Two this Saturday 15 July at 9pm.

Alan Yentob catches up with celebrated Turner Prize-winning artist Chris Ofili, as he completes work on The Caged Bird’s Song, a tapestry recently made with Dovecot Tapestry Studio.

In designing this tapestry, Ofili aims to demonstrate his ongoing fascination with classical mythology and contemporary `demigods’, while also paying tribute to the landscape of his adopted island home of Trinidad.

The Caged Bird’s Song can be seen free of charge, daily in the National Gallery London until 28 August.
