Lightseekers

Lightseekers | Art as Life

  • 29 September — 19 November 2017 *on now

Sessions were designed to re-imagine artisanal craftsmanship and hands-on production. Newly made lens-based works based on this varied collection of objects are also presented. Lead artist Kajal Nisha Patel worked in collaboration with professional sculptor David Booth, and Lee Richards of Upcycled Creative.


Participants were led through a series of activities, from conceptual thinking towards the development of sculptural and utilitarian artworks, using local scrap metal and other reclaimed materials. This led to wider discussions on art and making as a catalyst for change, and a tool for communities to begin the process of forming new, collective identities, shaped around skill sharing and knowledge exchange. Reflecting on the pre and post-industrial period, they considered the way that technological advances, combined with worklessness, provide the potential for creative skills and artisanal labour to be reconsidered as a valuable and fundamental resource for the development of a healthy society.
