Cardboard Castle Installation at Bestival, in collaboration with Chris Jenkins
A towering structure built from willow and found cardboard. An evolving platform for public free expression.
Visitors paint, write and colour using childrenʼs poster paint. What they create is thoughtful, funny, political, loving, spiritual and rude. Itʼs a message board, political placard or a shrine to absent friends. Sometimes its a giant colouring book.
The democratic nature of the artwork means that the artists become facilitators in the creation of an ephemeral collaborative intervention and the ownership is shared.
Arts Council England supported us to build the biggest castle installation so far at Bestival 2015 and over 5000 people took part in its creation.
HAY and BALES
Fibre and Paper installation created during a residency on a working dairy farm, commissioned by Arts Council England.
Briddlesford Hop Kilns Gallery and Heritage Museum are proud to present The Farmer’s Clock; an exhibition of works by resident artist Joanne Hummel-Newell supported by the Arts Council of England. Focused on farming rhythms governed by nature, The Farmer’s Clock combines a fibre and suspended paper installation with animation.
Joanne Hummel-Newell’s body of work investigates the farmer’s ongoing relationship with nature and their daily/yearly work routine which has been passed down through generations. Taking familiar elements from the working farm (scattered grass/silage bales) Joanne creates an installation which is symbolic in representing the hazardous and unpredictable nature of farming, as well as the devotion and constant work required of the farmer in order to ensure success.
The exhibition is made up of three parts; ‘Hay’, ‘Bales’, and ‘The Farmer’s Clock’. Hay is a detailed suspended installation made from paper and thread, a nod towards the often chaotic behaviour of the natural world. Bales is a series of tightly woven bundles made from coloured wool. The time-intensive process in making Bales was recorded in stop-frame animation to create The Farmer’s Clock, a moving image representation of the repetitive labour required of the farming family, each bale representing a year, each coloured layer a month, and each wrap, a day.
The newly restored Hop Kilns Gallery and Heritage Centre at Briddlesford Lodge Farm on the Isle of Wight was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Designed by architect, Lincoln Miles, the new gallery aims to showcase contemporary artworks which generate discussion and debate on issues which surround farming today, such as our relationship with food production, sustainability, ethical farming and farming methods and materials.
