After the success of the ‘Our Climate Change Forest ‘project 2020-21 we wanted to participate in the continuation project which address a range of perspectives on the climate issue facing us all. Like before the voice of our school community is expressed through the medium of Art.
Climate Unity Project 2022 Rationale
• To capture and share schools' voices and those of the wider community in thinking about Climate unity we are planning a series of installations across the County next summer 2022.
• The Southampton Gallery will feature schools’ work and it is hoped that schools will do additional pieces to sit in the community alongside other participants from community groups across Hampshire.
• Artwork will comprise of circular work using recycled materials to be symbolic of the planet and ideas about eternity and inclusion. The circle, round, sphere and ring
• The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity and timelessness.
• Embedding ideas about Climate Change, eternity, protection and inclusion
• Inside and outside space: This project will also be promoting community cohesion across the county by providing several different public spaces to include provide venues to share those varied and diverse perspectives - libraries and gardens around Hampshire.
• So, this year we need to produce 2 pieces of artwork
• One that can be housed outside in a public space- Hiltingbury Lakes
• One that can be hung and displayed in Southampton Art Museum
Our inside art project is going to be a textile piece inspired by the work of Louise Bourgeois.
Our outdoor sculpture will also be a woven piece which again uses the idea of the spider but this piece will be made from willow inspired by the artist Ruth Asawa.
