A GROWFLOWSHOW EXHIBITION BY ANYA BEAUMONT & JO TAYLOR
POSTED: 03/06/2019 16:04:03
Anya Beaumont and Jo Taylor showcase new work in a vibrant exhibition Flourish at the Pound Arts Centre, as part of the venue’s summer Blue Sky Festival. As Corsham-based artists, Jo and Anya embarked on an Arts Council England funded project back in January 2018, which enabled them to explore the town’s heritage and architecture.

The project, named GrowFlowShow, gave Anya and Jo the opportunity to expand their practices, which are well-known throughout Wiltshire and further afield. Recognised for her elegant paper sculpture and community collaborations, Anya’s new work explores steel as a medium for recreating organic forms. Meanwhile the baroque quality of Jo’s ceramics is illuminated by lighting and vibrant colour.  

With sculptural work inspired by celebrated and familiar places including Corsham Court and the Pound Arts Centre, Flourish will provide visitors with a unique take on the town, and encourage reflections on their memories of their own special places in Corsham through an interactive ‘Map Me’ activity. A parallel exhibition at Corsham Town Hall will display accompanying 2D works.

Alongside the exhibitions, a programme of engaging activities will further explore Corsham, its places and communities. Collaborative activities will include a sculpture made of recycled plastics (29 & 30 May at Corsham Community Campus) and a mapping activity (10 June – 13 July). Meanwhile, a symposium at the Pound invites a series of arts professionals to respond to the question “How can contemporary arts professionals elevate built environments to create fresh public engagement?” (21 June)

Anya and Jo will mark the end of the project with a ‘Walk and Talk’ on 13 July, taking participants on a tour of the places which have inspired them in Corsham, ending with a visit to the Bath Spa University collection at Corsham Court.

Flourish will be on show at the Pound Arts Centre from 10 June – 13 July, with an exhibition preview taking place on Wednesday 12 June to kick off the Pound’s exciting Blue Sky Festival (11 – 16 June).
