Record type: Art Design Item


Bould T and Mitchell B. SITE WORKS: the culmination of 3 years of research undertaken in collaboration with Belinda Mitchell (Interior Architect and Senior Lecturer in Interior Design, London Metropolitan University). Hampshire County Council Architects and Design Services, and Llewellyn’s Building Contractors. The Winchester Gallery; 30 September – 29 October 2004. Art works explore how architectural drawings, which appear precise and linear, are deeply textured, interwoven with the many ideas that go into making a building. The drawn line can be seen to take on addition al dimensions and volume as it links different groups of people, becoming the focus for a community. 20 pieces exhibited including: 1x glass installation,( 4.3m x 9.4m x 1m , 60 layers of glass); 1x video projection(2.3 x 2.3m); 1x installation approx 3m x 4m; 2 x video works; 1x hung work 5.4m x 1m; 3 x photographic collages; 11digital prints . Mitchell Bould visited the construction site of a new building on a weekly basis over an 18 month period documenting change and investigating the role of drawing through its relationship to construction. This primary investigation was followed by 18 months of studio based research activities resulting in the collection of works presented in the site works exhibition. Further artefacts related to this project include Site Works Artist Book ISBN 1 873451 53 9 with an essay by Victoria Mitchell (Lecturer in Critical studies Norwich School of Art and Design) published by the Winchester Gallery, and a permanent work in Osborne School Winchester. The project also sought to engage new audiences to the arts through workshops and events coordinated throughout the 3 years of research. New audiences included SEN School Children and their parents, primary teachers, construction workforce, architects and designers. Presentations about the project have been made by Mitchell Bould at Hampshire County Council (12 April 2005), Winchester School of Art, The School of Architecture, Portsmouth University (22nd April 22nd 2005). Detailed comparisons were made between architectural and artistic process have also informed subsequent research and projects and enabled the development of new approaches to teaching for undergraduate students at Winchester School of Art and Art Portsmouth University. The collection of work is also documented on the website; . Research for this body of work, was supported by an AHRC grant for research leave Oct 2004- Jan 2005, two Arts Council grants (£10.000 and £5,650) and by local and regional funding from HCC and WCC.
