In creating these new works, Peake and Shani are interested in exploiting the fluidity and speculation of lost civilizations and their mythologies. They will take an archaeological excavation as a point of departure to imagine and represent a non-hierarchal pre-historical civilization.
The installation, which will transform Wysing’s gallery in its entirety, will privilege sensation; sculptures will be formed of voluptuous fabrics and will incorporate flocking techniques to create soft and sensuous objects. Using multilayered elements, including sound, the exhibition will transport the visitor to an entirely coherent alternative reality.
Success of past art classes at Wysing Arts Centre
Wysing Arts Centre is committed to running high quality professional art classes for adults and children run by practising artists with an emphasis on process and learning and experimentation within the given medium.
Please keep in touch with us as classes and events are run across the year on an ad hoc basis until we reopen in September 2007.
