site specific ephemeral sculpture

Social Sculpture

Inspired by Joseph Beuys and his concepts of Social Sculpture where ‘everyone is an artist’, I organised Art Trails in local green zones to inspire a sense of connection to neglected areas. Here the Social sculpture  was the process of group participation.  As well as gathering together, the participants  would make Site Specific Ephemeral Environmental  Sculptures along a trail  – a process art- where they went on a journey and discovered the biodiversity of their local green spaces then make sculptures with those found materials which in part represented and then became their connection to that place and the natural world.  I would organise to have professional artists, school groups and local community members. The entire action would be a creative spectacle for and by the local community in celebration and recognition of their local ecologies.
