Never-Land makes its way to Venice in a couple of weeks.. It the next iteration of the project which at this significant point in history wants to think to a better time, challenge negative scripts and acknowledge the possibilities for a future that understands itself in ways that are not tied into the present state of things. Never-Land presented in Venice is the 2nd part of a European project involving many authors of different ages and abilities. The students of Liceo Artistico Guggenheim School, Venice with support of their staff are the 2nd cohort. Yorkshire Artspace Sheffield was the first and on our return we move to Leicester Printworks - we acknowledge these and their participants as part of the process of creating a Never-Land.
In each city we are trying to think forward, imagining together taking collage literally and metaphorically in considering a different Europe. We have generated new artworks that propose and provoke further questions. The outcomes on display in CFZ within Ca’Foscari University, are drawn from across the larger project and include digital prints created by Liceo Artistico Guggenheim students.
We are presenting the work made during our Venice stay along with work from Sheffield at both the international conference at CaFoscari University: John Ruskin’s Europe and in an exhibition at CFZ in Zattre for the month of October. We will also lead an open discussion and short presentation at the opening of the exhibition.
