Art Work Celebrates the Many Faces of The Hive

Back to news listings

A special exhibition by Art students at the University of Worcester, inspired by The Hive, will go on display in the building this week.

Students were provided with a brief by The Hive’s management team to engage the audience in reappraising The Hive as a space and place.

Drawing on the building for inspiration, the work presented uses a wide range of creative approaches from painting, performance, projection, sculpture, installation, intervention and sound pieces.

The exhibition begins on Monday, April 27th and runs until Monday, May 4th. The students work will be on display in various locations around the building during this time.

Senior Lecturer, Pippa Galpin, said: “The work that the students have come up with is really varied. One student’s piece is the result of wrapping and draping materials around certain structures and furnishings in The Hive and photographing them over a period of six weeks; another is projecting an animation across one of the walls; and another has made a model which explores The Hive’s environmental aspects, namely drawing water from the river.

“This is an excellent example of our students being asked to work on a live brief and to gain some really valuable experience.”
