Artists working with video

      Sara Bjarland Concerned with the vulnerability of nature and our alienation from it, Bjarland uses installations, photography and moving images, working with found and recycled materials. "The domestic-ness, or everyday-ness, is an important element of my work; showing the dull, the overlooked and discarded, rather than the spectacular or colourful". Heather Phillipson Poet and artist. Her practice extends across many media, including music, text, and performance. Uses techniques from film editing to montage and cutting. Pipilotti Rist Wants to expose the abuse women suffer trying to satisfy the male gaze; she has a strong sense of composition and sensitivity to colour (use of bright colours) and usually in her work humour goes together with political commentary.

Sculpture project

Work in progress: The sculpture, made of timber, glassware and a piece of found wood, was  created using three joints: dowel joint, lap joint and screw. Final piece in the sculpture group exhibition:

Sculptors inspiration

  Robert Cronbach Best remembered for his medals and architechtural sculpture. His works often go against the preconceptions of stability in a sculpture (heavy weight on fragile legs). Naum Gabo His constructions show the importance of disposition and interlocking of precisely defined planes and a rhythmic organisation of space. David Smith Sculptures made up of various existing elements, almost like collages. Julio Gonzalez Iron is transformed into evocative forms; usually makes visible the process of making(inspired by Rodin) to give an unfinished effect. Tony Cragg  Explores unconventional materials(plastic, fiberglass, bronze..). His pieces embody a frozen moment of movement. Eva Rothschild  Her work is characterized by minimalism influences and fragility.   Paul Neagu In his sculptures there is a link between earthly, material creation and philosophical inquiry and symboli

Three-dimensional abstract painting

The piece was created with this question in mind: ‘What if the subject/content of a painting was presented outside of the canvas?’ The shapes are in fact, outside what should be the ‘frame’ of the painting, making it "out of place". The three-dimensional abstract painting was made through using various materials, cut and arranged in different shapes, then assembled together. The colours are meant to highlight the different materials and at the same time blend them together as if they were part of the same piece. Work in progress: Final piece: A painting was later created in response to the three dimensional collage, by taking some of its shapes and colours and transforming them into a two-dimensional original piece.

Artists using assemblage

Pablo Picasso Cubist contructions conveying the idea that paintings and works of art are nothing but objects. Kurt Schwitters Dada practice; created "Merz"technique, that consisted of utilizing scavenged scrap materials to create collages and assemblages. Robert Raushenberg Anti-aesthetic approach to making art using found objects, scrappy materials and messily applied paint; his aim  was to create expressionist reliefs and sculptures. Alberto Burri One of the first artists of the "Arte Povera" movement, in his works he applyed simple and (usually thought to be) humble or poor materials, to suggest the idea that the material is the real subject matter. Yannis Kounellis and  Mario Merz Exponents of the Arte Povera movement who created assemblages of throwaway natural and everyday materials; aim: challenge and destroy the values of the commercialised contemporary gallery system. Damien Hirst Cont

Suspended assemblage

An assemblage was created in relation to the previous works in the theme of "Out of place", but deals with the theme of out of place and meaning of displacement in terms of an object deprived of its original function and the ambiguity deriving from it.   The chair is deprived of its original function since it is suspended in the air and it's impossible to sit on it. The different objects hanging from the chair show the contrast between the simplicity of natural elements and everyday objects .   Plastic chair, rope, rocks, toilet rolls, mesh wire, nailbrushes
