'Fluid' WorkshopsAntony Hall

10 May - 14 May 2004

Workshops with pupils from Knelston and Mayals Primary Schools in Swansea, accompanied the exhibiton 'Fluid' by Manchester based artist Antony Hall. 

The parallels between the artist’s studio and the scientist laboratory led Hall to define his work as a series of ongoing experiments and projects. The philosophical motivations behind the activities of  scientists, which demands such attention to the minuscule, and a need for creative thought in the solution of problems, corresponds to the predicament of the artist.  

Mission Gallery series of workshops by Antony Hall is a unique opportunity for schools in the area to discover more about this fascinating exhibition Fluid – an atmospheric exhibition of projections and table top experiments.  Antony Hall is artist in residence at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology as part of a residency project.   

Hall engaged the children with ideas about our continual relationship with the cosmos through the amplification and reassessment of what is often perceived as mundane phenomena. Drawings, experiments and interaction with the artworks, all contributed to this unique and fascinating workshop. 

These workshops will give pupils the opportunity to view and talk with an artist who uses science and experimentation as his art form.  Working withAntonyat the gallery children can apply their knowledge and understanding of scientific ideas to what they seen in the exhibition. Antonywill lead the workshops enabling the pupils to carry out systematic investigations, working on their own ideas,  talking and communicating using a wide range of scientific language - drawings, charts and graphs. Antony's own investigations and observations will give a unique insight and portrayal of a world that will enhance and stimulate the children’s conception of science. 

Antony Hall studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at UWIC and MA in Art as Environment atManchesterMetropolitanUniversity. Previous exhibitions have included; g39,  Cardiff 2001, Station,  Bristol 2001, Wales Art International, Milan Italy, 2001, Spacex, Exeter, R-type, Bloc Space, Sheffield 2003
