Miro Magic at Forest

“Miro’s sculpture is based on an assemblage of objects. The object upends the problem of representation; art is no longer what interprets reality but rather everyday items are the ones that adopt a new identity in the aesthetic context. The figuration of the object is conveyed by the artist’s language of signs”.

If you’ve been into the Deaton Theatre foyer recently, you would have seen our brilliant display of assemblage sculpture created by Forest pupils. Using every day objects, ModRoc, glue, paint and an array of other products, imaginations went into overdrive and a miniature army of the weird and the wonderful are now standing guard and delighting those who pass by. No matter how often you look, there is always something that you’ve not spotted before!
We know the importance of creativity here at Forest – it’s not simply an outlet for wellbeing – it fosters curiosity across the whole learner and across all subjects, gives them a sense of ‘anything being possible’, adds depth and understanding, and brings with it some pretty awesome results!
