The Stanley Picker Gallery is pleased to present Let yourself go, an online presentation, preceded by a one-day exhibition of artworks, made by Year 6 pupils from St Luke’s C of E Primary School, Kingston, who as part of the Stanley Picker Gallery’s Schools’ Programme, participated in a series of Gallery-based workshops inspired by The Liquid Game, an immersive and multi-sensory installation by Stanley Picker Fellows, Boudicca (Zowie Broach and Brian Kirkby) which takes influence from by the Gallery’s cultural history and island location along the Hogsmill River.
Throughout this programme pupils learnt about the duo’s practice, influences and creative processes, while sharing their individual interpretations and ideas through listening activities, drawing and discussion. Inspired by Boudicca, and before them John Everett Millais (1829-1896) pupils explored the riverbank, sketching and collecting other visual and digital material for transformation into their own distorted landscapes, featured in the slideshow above, and interactive installations, the filmed outcomes of which can be viewed by clicking through the links below.
