Entertainment / Sun 30th Apr 2023 at 09:18am
THIS season Henry Moore Studios & Gardens have joined forces with University Centre Colchester students and tutors across the BA (Hons) Fine Art and Fashion and Printed Textile courses to reshape the Sheep Field Barn project space.
Located in Perry Green, Hertfordshire, Henry Moore Studios & Gardens celebrates the life and work of British sculptor Henry Moore. For this joint project, students and tutors have been invited to work within the new Sheep Field Barn project space, using Moore’s iconic themes and studio spaces as inspiration to explore their own ideas and develop their creative practice.
In dialogue with their own ideas and personal practice, the group has been experimenting with cross-disciplinary ways of working together, considering how process-led practice develops and evolves into collections of work, out of the studio and into display space individually, collectively and for others to experience.
The work they have created embraces this season’s theme of Vitality, prompting questions of creative life force, how we move through the world, and the relationship of works with space, scale, their environment and each other.
The new display Conversation to Creation will open to visitors from Wednesday 10 May to Sunday 14 May 2023, with an event for the public happening Friday 12 May 2023. The full press release is attached. If you would like any more information, images or to arrange a visit please do get in touch
