This exhibition by Pamina Stewart is part of the Propagation 2021 project that she organised and coordinated during the lockdown months of the coronavirus pandemic. The nature of the project was to ensure that artists could continue to work and exhibit safely despite being isolated from each other due to the spread of Covid-19. The artists collaborated by designing their own individual artworks and then sharing the instructions to build them with each other. As with much communication during lockdown, the instructions were transmitted digitally prior to construction by each project member.
All the work on display in Moseley Park and Pool has been constructed by Pamina Stewart.
Pamina has created a series of ‘’Forest Guardians’’, creatures to protect and watch over the park. The sculptures are all based on current UK wildlife, that many people have taken great pleasure and solace with during the lockdowns. All are made from hard-to-recycle food packaging and natural renewable natural materials. Assembling and making new things while recycling fires Pamina’s imagination and celebrates the exploration of these non-traditional materials.
Three of the pieces also on display were constructed by Pamina from instructions received from Joss Burke, Simone Frater-Russell and Sarah Galloway as part of “Propagation 2021”:
Simone Frater- Russell: “2020 – Diary of lost events”. This artwork is made from twelve shibori dyed panels to form of a calendar; each appliqued and embroidered to represent each month of last year.
Joss Burke: “Homegrown”. A sculpture in two parts with ‘’home’’ made from cut willow and ‘’grown’’ formed from living willow.
Sarah Galloway: “Transmissive Imprint”. A decorative hanging panel of prints and imprints documenting journeys and memories.
The pieces in the exhibition celebrate the beauty of the natural world, our relationship within it and our guardianship of all that is meaningful and valuable.
Free access to the Park on Wednesday 21st, Saturday 24th and Wednesday 28th April from 10 am until 4 pm.
