Hanningtons Lane Student Bursary
We, You, Me, the Artists Open Houses student bursary exhibition, offered by the new Hanningtons Lane Development, features the work of four third year Fine Art: Sculpture students studying at the University of Brighton. Having last exhibited together in the OXY exhibition held at the University of Brighton city campus galleries this new exhibition is an opportunity to see the development of these emerging artists’ work following their conversations with the internationally renowned artist and AOH Ambassador David Shrigley.
Bradley Smith’s work focuses on contemporary gender issues. The work encourages people to view gender as a constantly evolving, fluid construct. Using household fabrics, text and symbols to create soft sculptural forms, the work aims to engage audiences in questioning societies heteronormative views on gender and sexuality.
Jack Digby’s work investigates the juxtapositions between nature and the manmade. Through the use of metals, found materials and florescent lights he examines themes related to human nature such as relationships, the self, causes of destruction and decay, and our affiliation to the digital age.
Liberty Cheverall creates sculptures, drawings and installation artworks, exploring the domestic and ideologies of the home. Themes of security, finance, relationships, materialism and sentiment are explored. Her artworks combine found objects with newly created forms to reflect both familiarity and uncertainty. The work employs images of houses constructed from carpet and metal to investigate ideas and emotions associated with home. Sculpture and installation works frequently incorporate audience interaction to complete the work.
Ainoa Burgos Gonzalez born in Segovia, Spain and is based in Brighton. Her artistic practice is multidisciplinary, encompassing sculpture, installation, performance and photography, to investigate the body and its engagement in space. Sculpture and installation works examine the physical body, the connection between people and the trace the body leaves on surfaces and places.
