First in a number of exciting events happening in the next few months is my final year Degree Show; 53 More Things to Do In Zero Gravity.
Running from the 20th June until the 27th, the exhibition marks the end of three years of intense hard work, and the start no doubt, of more. I will be displaying my project Yuanming Yuan, alongside the work of 48 other Fine Art graduates, some of whom are featured in this post.
For a description, you can’t get much better than the official write up:
The title ‘53 More Things to do in Zero Gravity’ alludes to the idea of a group of young artists, working in their studios on a windy hill, with many creative ideas bouncing around, suddenly set free. This exhibition is a celebration of three years of making, thinking, sharing and learning. It marks a ‘cutting free’, a moment of propulsion when these artists carry their ideas and skills into the wider world. Free-thinking and risk taking have been core values of our Fine Art course which encourages crossing boundaries between art disciplines and media. Within this artistic laboratory, philosophical thought mixes with personal experiences, cultural observations and practical discovery. The exhibition presents a diverse range of creative approaches, including contemporary drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, new media and public encounters. The variety of artwork and approaches attests to a vibrant place, and to what intellectual curiosity and creative adventure makes possible. For those who come after, this exhibition might suggest what can still be discovered up on this windy hill.
