Selby Ginn Art Installation Project
Location: Jiuqian, China
Date: 11/03/15 - 09/05/15
Selby Ginn specialises in process-based and installation artworks, which combine found objects, sculpture, performance, painting and drawing.
Selby’s practice is an interpretive visual language. It is a dialogue that describes the cycles of human experience and references time, the human form, mythology, ritual and symbols. Her installations often include suspended forms, which are intended to coalesce with the space, describing part of a cycle rather than an end point.
During the two months residency the skills Selby introduced to the children include the techniques of: weaving, bookbinding, hand-sewing, leather work, eye/hand manipulative skills, wire armature construction, the sourcing and recycling of found materials and to encourage their individual ways to visualise and actualise their own personal narrative and visual expression.
