Art NOTICE BOARD
During lockdown, The Bridge Academy students and staff were invited by UBS to take part in a collaborative art installation, inspired by the work of Anthony Gormley, in particular his 1993 installation, Field for the British Isles. Each participant was given a block of air drying clay and instructed to sculpt a figure, with the simple instructions that it must have eyes and be able to stand up on its own – the outcome was amazing! Each little figure certainly had a personality of its own, and, as you can see from the pictures, despite their individuality, they all came together as one little terracotta community when installed on site at UBS. I’d like to thank UBS for involving us and other schools in the Hackney area in such a special project that I know we will all remember as a positive moment amidst a very trying time.
