From Conversation to Creation
In 2023 as part of my degree at The Colchester School of Art I was invited to work with the team at the Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green, Hertfordshire.
The brief was to make a work in response to the theme of ‘Vitality’ and Moore’s work.
I created a sculpture which consisted of 18 boxes made out of cardboard. The work was called My Family and Other Memories. It was a play on the exquisite corpses that the surrealist movement introduced and also the multi-part figures that Moore created.
One of the themes I explored with this work was engaging the audience. I invited them to re-compose the sculpture in any way they wished. Once people overcame their reluctance they enjoyed handling the boxes and making new compositions. Visitors found the work fun and playful.
