To coincide with the launch of our graduate programme, we've selected five artists who have considered education as part of their practice, featuring: David Lloyd, Julieann Worrall Hood, Razvan Anton, Anna Chrystal Stephens and nikkita morgan
CoedCae School Llanelli LCSS Support Artist, 2016 - 2017
Support Artist to a multi-disciplinary project based on the theme of Migration and displacement, working with modelling clay, recycled materials.
Lines of Desire, 2015 - 2016
An interdisciplinary creative education research project at Bath Spa University, co-devised and led by Julieann Worrall Hood, Dr Rebecca Schaaf and Professor Owain Jones. This collaborative project involved art, geography, creative media and film students, the artists Richard Long, Sue Lawty and Richard White and the Arnolfini gallery Bristol, responding to the multi layered experience of place through digital multi media mapping, walking and land art practices.
The experience and outcomes of the project were presented by Julieann and Becky at the Landscaping Change conference at Bath Spa University in March 2016, and also disseminated through a short film made by Media students and a published paper, Geography and Art: Encountering Place Across Disciplines, available on academia.edu
Esthetics of Learning, 2016
Location: Printmaking Gallery, The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, United States
“Esthetics of Learning” is a project focused on the topic of education. This exhibition is a mixture of the ironic and the historic. Anton selects four artists concerned with a critical perspective on the topic of Romanian public instruction and its form. Miklósi Dénes uses archive images of student work from the 1960’s highlighting the choreography of institutionalized art. Cristian Opri? is building a printmaking course with the intention of teaching students how to make a million dollars. Raluca Popa is re-appropriating old test papers from her civic culture course regarding socio-political concepts in post-communist Romania and Razvan Anton is exhibiting drawings of students and pupils in classrooms which are layered specters of memory.
Edible Plant Survival Tarp, 2015
#1 The tarp can be strung between trees in a tent like manor. The fabric is printed with an illustrated key to common ebible plants.
#2 The tarp can be tied up high underneath fruit or berries in the hope that it will act as a kind of hammock to catch falling autumn edibles. There will always be a chance someone might take it; if some one is willing to climb a tree and cut it down, they probably really need it for something.
#3 A friend wishes to take the plant-tarp on a month long walk. It might be used as a ground sheet or protection from rain or wind.
Border Less, 2019
Outcome from my community based workshops with the ladies from Beleek's Women's shed as part of my international artist in residence programme in Count Fermanagh. For this project the ladies responded to Brexit and the border using a range of taught hand embroidery skills to illustrate their response. Final outcome comprised of a collaborative embroidered banner.
