open art exhibition at the University of Essex, a great opportunity to get our work into the public,
i dropped off the black and white sculpture (which i still need to pick up, oops) and it was placed in the exhibition by the curators, it was interesting how they pieces together the 100 or so entries that were submitted. the photographs of apples were those who won the first prize, quite rightly they were incredibly beautiful.
i was intrigued to see how my work would be displayed and to see if the piece would be able to withstand the time it was exhibited, as each thread was just threaded through the foam sides, not fixed in any way. in the photograph you are able to see that some threads had been pulled through, which i dont know if i was disappointed by or not, i was quite happy to see that the delicate state was altered.
the exhibition had an event which meant all artists exhibiting could come for a glass of wine and a presentation, it was truly inspiring to see such a wide variety of artists and works hung in one space, especially as it was such a small event.
