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.

This new series of works by Andrea Gregson is an assortment of objects constructed from found and acquired, often broken, man-made items as well as material from nature.  The individual elements in these sculptures have been collected by Gregson over a protracted period and are linked together by the journey through her life.  Reconfigured in this new body of work the many separate parts form a new cohesive whole.  Using the found objects as well as casting them in different materials, Gregson reinvents them as sculptural assemblage.

Within the display cabinet is a series of sculptures bringing together found items and components cast in bronze. The works are composed from parts of food and cosmetic containers and rocks found on walks along the Thames embankment as well as other locations. There is a distinct play between the moulded forms, where the original material has lost its specific character; the organic, raw state of the stone and rock constituents and the pieces that are remnants from modern-day life.

On the wall opposite, concrete sculptures disrupt the wall as evolving shapes emerge from the surface.  A transformation from visceral material to tangible form takes place, one that is reminiscent of the intermediary stages between liquid to solid states. Another series of sculptures are placed on the tables in Concrete Café, offering the invitation to be handled.  Ornamental in scale, these plaster objects are oddities with a debatable purpose.

The making of some of this new work was inspired by Gregson’s recent encounter at Camber Sands with WW2 Bunkers that were cast in-situ on the beach.  Over time the ground has shifted to reveal the softer organic form of the foundations now visibly in strong contrast with the brutal structures of the wood cast bunkers. A relation echoed throughout Gregsons new work.

Andrea Gregson lives and works in London. She graduated with an MA in Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University following a Postgraduate Fellowship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.  In 2012 she completed a Bronze Fellowship at Chelsea School of Art and is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at UCA Farnham.
