A group of creatives have developed new work exploring ideas around freedom, activism, authenticity, time and changing values. They have explored the themes in their own way referencing important topics including LGBTQ+ rights, identity and mental health.
The young creatives spent time exploring the themes with first hand research, using Ai WeiWei: The Liberty of Doubt exhibition Kettle’s Yard and working with Wysing Studio artists Soheila Sokhanvari and Bettina Furnee to expand their approach to the themes.
During the interactions with Kettle's Yard and Wysing Arts Centre, they created clay work with artist Josh Bilton, soundscapes and typography work with Bettina Furnee, and shared their work back with the group. The young people developed new ideas and ways of working through the project, resulting in a variety of media in the final work, to include 16mm and digital film. They worked with artists O. S. Warren and Evelyn Whorral-Campbell to explore access and share their work online.
The young creatives on the project were UAL Level 3 Visual Communication Diploma Students from Cambridge Regional College, and the project ran from February - June 2022.
The work will be on display at Kettle’s Yard from 2 – 5pm 17 June, and 11am – 5pm on 18 and 19 June 2022. The works will be on display on the WysingBroadcasts.Art website until 17 September.
