Bird Seed Sculpture making with artist Georgia Gendall of Allotment Club
Saturday 16 October | 1.00- 2.30pm | The Community Hub, South Park
Following the groundswell interest in gardening and community growing spaces, and considering the politics of who has access to green space and land, artist Georgia Gendall will join us to lead a session of bird seed sculpture making, and share her experiences of developing Allotment Club — a series of artist residencies from a shed in Penryn — and broader artistic practice.
If it makes you feel more comfortable, please feel free to wear a mask in the Community Hub, we will have windows open and the space is well ventilated.
If you would like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are coming along and so we can send over any extra details.
About the artist:
Georgia’s practice takes on many forms; ranging from ludicrously impractical human powered contraptions and snappy ‘epic fail’ videos to cyclical sculptures, enduring sound works and public events. Her wry eye and attention to life’s smaller details underpins her work and she adapts found objects to redirect, interject, mimic and rethink how we interact with everyday places, people and local ecologies.
Georgia runs The Allotment Club; a project space on an allotment in Penryn, Cornwall and is in the second year of running Residency in a Shed; a residency in the shed on the allotment. She is also the instigator of Forced Collaboration; a collaborative platform that aims to forge relationships between artists from different disciplines and locations, it has been running for four years and has facilitated over 200 collaborations between artists all over the world.
