More chances to find the perfect hiding place. You can soon enjoy this artwork again using QR codes at Oakwell Country Park. I will let you know when they are up.
Just back from a fantastic weekend researching at Oakwell Hall.
On friday I did some consultation with children about how they explore. Thank you to Amanda for letting me join her and the School on a meadow survey – some seriously good bugs and flowers caught in the rings of those flying hula hoops. Thank you to the kids for all your hiding suggestions and stories.
On saturday I did some more exploring with families this time, thank you to everyone who joined me. Your input has been fantastic and I am so inspired I can’t wait to get writing.
A walking adventure that invites families to take a journey through Oakwell Country Park, using a set of playfully incomplete and poetic directions to find ‘the perfect place to hide.’
I have devised a site-specific walk that invite you to intertwine your ideas, experiences and imagination with the place you are in and to re-explore your landscape from a fresh perspective.
I will be at Oakwell Hall as part of We Do’s Bear Hunting and Other Ways To Walk Festival. I will be there to start you off on your adventure and then you can come share with me the perfect hiding place they lead you too.
If you can’t make it on August 23rd you will be able to return there and use the directions to find a place to hide any time you like – either pick up a printed copy or use the QR codes on site to access a digital version.
Date: Sunday 23rd August
Time: 11am – 3pm
Price: FREE event, no booking required
Venue: Oakwell Hall, Nutter Lane, Birstall, Batley, Yorkshire WF17 9LG
CHANGE SPACES | Sorrel Muggridge Gallery II | 25 May – 19 July 2012
A Gallery II new commission in collaboration with:
Lisa Cumming: Programme for a Peaceful City, School of Social and International Studies
David Robison: Senior Lecturer; mobile content, new media and narrative, Bradford Media School
How does conflict feel? What choices do we have to make? What changed? What change is needed?
We have all experienced conflict and change in our lives.
Artist Sorrel Muggridge draws on ideas gathered and developed during a period of research, to create an experimental, interactive installation which responds to the experience of being involved in conflict situations and change. Sorrel is using the dynamic processes involved in rope making as a metaphor for the experience of peace building and conflict transformation.
You are invited to take part in this process. Come and make rope with us on the night and add your experiences to the installation or hear how others are responding to these questions.
This gallery contains 8 photos.
After an inspiring three weeks of walking, talking and paddling the river; here are a selection of fantastic images from A Curious Meander 2011. I am now working on the archiving of all these journeys in a book. This … Continue reading
I have started this online site as a space to share my work from afar. I am currently preparing a piece Titled: A Curious Meander which will take place as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2011.
A Curious Meander is inspired by water’s transformative qualities, the constant journey it is taking and the impact of this passage on the water, and the places it moves through. I am connecting this osmotic process with our own relationship to our surroundings. I have been walking with the water along the river Wensum for over a year, sometimes alone and sometimes with others curious about this space – walkers, artists, historians, scientists, boatmen, fishermen. These walks along the river and the stories they generate have now become part of this installation artwork.
