Exploring the body as a dystopian-ecosystem, 'The Body and No Body' was installated in situ as series of collaborative sculptures. The installation will open at Artwalk Wakefield on Wednesday 31 May, 5 – 8pm, and will be open to visitors on Friday 2 June and Saturday 3 June, 12 – 4pm.
"I’ve really enjoyed working collaboratively with Hollie in a new environment and making valuable connections outside the university. It’s been highly fulfilling. We’ve both learnt a lot over the course of the past few weeks in terms of making, curating, installing and creating marketing materials. I’ve really enjoyed the freedom we’ve been granted to completely transform the space and the support we’ve had from Amy and Lucy from The Art House has been invaluable."
Students from across the University were invited to submit proposals for events, exhibitions, workshops, performances and installations to take place as part of Artwalk Wakefield 2023. Erika and Hollie’s installation is the first of four successful submissions to the brief funded by Knowledge Exchange which provides for activities that engage with external organisations for the benefit of the economy and society.
