Artpark commission at Gæsteatelier Hollufgård, Fyn, Denmark 2017-18

Whilst artist in residence at Gæsteatelier Hollufgård, Denmark in June 2017, I made two new works for the ArtPark, in situ for one year until 2018. One of the works Checkpoint is placed on the border of Glisholme Forest and the E20 a super highway linking Fyn with Jutland and Sjaelland . The sculpture has an inside space, is a portal with two viewpoints, of the forest and the road; sited to reflect upon the deafening hum of the motorway. Designed for a person to stand inside, sketches of objects from the immediate area are pinned to the walls. It transfers the dilemma of the road onto the artwork and the paradox of this place. Close to Checkpoint, is another work, Korssting, a 6 metre curtain located at a broken section of the forest, punctured by a row of dead trees and the bellow of the motorway. The curtain articulates the form of the wind like a colossal sail brokering the mood of the surrounding forest.  The translation of the hand sewn text reads, “The one who stays silent, gives consent”, taken from a sampler given to me whilst in Denmark.

Chelsea School of Art Foundry Fellowship – Seminar Wed 30th Oct 3pm

October 11, 2013

    

    CHELSEA FOUNDRY FELLOWSHIP           SEMINAR  2013  

    Wednesday 30th October 2013

    3.00pm in the Green Room at Chelsea College of Art & Design

 

 

You are invited to see presentations by four more Foundry Fellows who have been working at different periods in the foundry at Chelsea College of Art & Design from 2011 until 2013.

These are the seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth Fellows at this year’s seminar:  Andrea Gregson, Natuka Honrubia, Barbara Tong and Ian Middleton.

As well as the four individual presentations, there will also be a discussion by the Fellows about their thoughts and reflections on their time and experience while working in the foundry.

The Foundry Fellowship is a programme where we periodically invite an artist to work in the Chelsea College of Art Foundry in order to develop their practice through an agreed project involving the processes of Fine Art Bronze Casting.

 Whilst the prime aim of the fellowship is to support the Fellow in their individual work, we expect through their presence working alongside students and staff in the foundry, to open up discourse and debate about making, collaboration and the broader scope of creative practice. (Previous Fellows include; Prof. Paul Coldwell, Bruce Gernand, Robson Cezar, Sam Burford, Marco Chiandetti and Richard Slatter).

This is an opportunity to see the scope of work that has been produced during these fellowships, and for people to ask questions and give their views about this programme.

All Welcome.
