DESCRIPTION

This will be a special family-focused afternoon full of activities for all ages inspired by Rachel Champion's ideas.

Champion’s practice is based around large scale constructions and architectural interventions; fabricated environments which interrogate humanity’s shifting and uncertain relationship with technology and the natural world. Typically Champion uses materials commonly found on the sites of major construction projects. These industrial products, often hidden in the landscape, are deliberately presented out of context juxtaposing their alien sculptural qualities with an inherent functionality. The work is informed by such diverse areas of knowledge as municipal architecture, ecology and mechanics. For this residency Champion will be working in both the Artists’ Studio and the garden to research and develop new work.
