The Exhibited Work and Community
The collaborating artists will draw from material in museums and archives to create a collection of final works. The individual pieces will be exhibited on a twelve-sided framework produced in mild steel. These pieces, along with a series of printed plates (selected entries from the digital book) will be presented in the exhibition. During the exhibition visitors will have the opportunity to add to the work through submissions, the artists will then create additional pieces using these references before the next exhibition.
Exhibition 2 RWA Mid April – Late May 2018
The second exhibition will incorporate new pieces created during and following the Christchurch exhibition. Approx. 400 pieces (or two-thirds of the final number) of the final works will be exhibited. Again, visitors will have the opportunity to add to the work through submissions inspiring additional pieces.
Exhibition 3 Shrine of Remembrance September 2018 – October 2019
The collaborating artists will exhibit the final wreath form (with approximately 600 pieces) including additional pieces made through but not limited to material sourced in Christchurch & Bristol and from additional archival materials to present the final works. The individual pieces will again be exhibited on the steel fabricated framework. These pieces along with a complete series of printed plates (pages from the digital book) will be presented in this exhibition.
