Photos are from a commission-in-progress at Tate Britain. The sculptures in the photos are prototype models made from temporary materials. They will be adapted into a series of multi-sensory multi-functional sonorous objects, using wood, papier-mâché, rubber, and metal in response to how they are interacted with by SEND and Early Years Children. The resulting sculptures will be available for groups to use at Tate Britain later this year. Photos below are the prototypes in the historical galleries ‘Art for the Crowd’ and ‘Revolution and Reform’.
Quote from a primary school teacher on how their young people used the sculptures ‘The variation between each one was also impressive as they could experiment with different shapes and ideas. Was good to see them unlock their creativity and explore without being ushered towards a particular answer.’
