Flash mix it up
Young people from the flash group in Plymouth joined
forces with the Take A Part project and Stepping Stones to nature
to produce a ‘cob sculpture’ in Kinterbury Creek.
The sculpture is one of a number across 5 Plymouth
communities.The group were invited to join Efford residents
from a community group called Crazy Glue who had commissioned
artist Alain Pezard to work with them to create cob sculptures (out
of mud and straw) across Plymouth. The purpose of the project
was to start a dialogue with communities about their areas and
about their thoughts on contemporary art. The process of making the
work and speaking with communities was made into a film – The Art
Orbit, which will screen at Plymouth Arts Centre for the duration
of British Art Show 7.
