27th June and 4th July
The last couple of weeks at the Y Zone in Radcliffe we've been working with students from Riverside school to create text/art badges. Using photocopying, drawing and writing the young people created ‘one-off’ artworks, about identity and their vision of sculpture. We viewed the work they have created so far and a collection of sculptures to inspire: Christo, Andy Goldsworthy, David Mach, Claes Oldenburg, George Wyllie and Richard Long.
The young people re-created classical sculptural poses, such as Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’, covering themselves with their badges, and photographing themselves in mirrored backdrops. As ever their energy was enormous, and resulting text/art/sculpture fantastic.
