Pop in the park – Wicksteed Park residency exhibition

Artist Susan Williams has been creating contemporary art and community projects in the park as part of the Wicksteed Centenary Festival of Play celebration.

Now a Pop In The Park exhibition in The Learning Space is showcasing the artwork from 1pm to 4pm each day until October 9.

A residency photographic exhibition on the wall space continues will also be held from 1pm to 4pm between October 10 and 17.

The Pop In The Park exhibition includes images of large-scale ephemeral installations, video of WIND INSTALLATIONS, animations and community projects such as the BUBBLE project, the SWIMMING NOODLE SCULPTURE workshops and the ART WITH NATURE drawing and animation online project.

The project’s aim was to work with Wicksteed Park and local people to create a stream of engaging art experiences that celebrated the park and its communities.  The art works developed responded to Wicksteed’s beautiful landscape, reflecting the park’s important role providing recreation, a meeting place, nature and wellbeing to the people of Kettering and beyond.

Susan, from Kettering, studied at the Royal Academy and has won national and international residencies including several USA residencies.  She is noted for her work with light, space and wind and her use of everyday materials.

Her minimal installations key into their surroundings, energizing both the material and the space.

This project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
