The practice is part of a team of Scottish artists and architects being led by WAVEparticle who are representing Scotland at the international exhibition: The Biennale Architecttura 2018.
To celebrate Scotland’s year of Young People, we have been working with the pupils at St Ninian’s to explore the vennels of Perth. The exhibited work will be a film made in collaboration with artist Brian Hartley, which documents the children exploring and learning about the city centre vennels through workshops and creating artwork in response to their experiences of these Freespaces.
In addition to the film we have created special seed packets which will handed out to local participants at the event in exchange for a word, story or song!
The Venice Biennale is one of the world’s leading architecture and arts festivals. With an audience of more than half a million people each year. The exhibition for 2018 will be titled The Happenstance and focuses of the theme of Freespace.
The proposal is supported and promoted by the Scotland + Venice partnership: Scottish Government, Architecture and Design Scotland, Creative Scotland, British Council and the Year of Young People/Young Scot.
