    Lincolnshire One with Usher Young Creatives and University of Lincoln’s National Art & Design Saturday Club

    Generation ART exhibitors, Lincolnshire One

    The main aim of #Sheepselfie was to encourage two young groups of artists, Usher Young Creatives (UYC) and University of Lincoln’s National Art & Design Saturday Club (NADSC), to collaborate and engage with their local community; share their artistic ideas and explore those of others. Thirty three young people took part in the project.

    Ali (leader of the University of Lincoln’s NADSC) was inspired by Judith Hopf”s Flock of Sheep when she visited the Liverpool Biennale in 2014. The work of artist Tejo Remy also inspired her to want to use the material concrete with the group. She met Alice (leader of UYC) briefly during an art event led by The Collection and Usher Gallery in 2014 and thought it would be an opportune moment for both groups to collaborate.

    The groups were able to use the Art & Design workshops, University of Lincoln to create, and then ‘tour’, their concrete sheep, helped by tutors and graduates from the university, and staff from The Collection and Usher Gallery.

#Sheepselfie aimed to encourage two young creative groups; University of Lincoln’s National Art & Design Club and Lincolnshire One, to collaborate and engage with their local community, share artistic ideas and explore those of others. The groups were able to use the Art & Design workshops, University of Lincoln to create their concrete sheep, helped by tutors and graduates from the university, and staff from The Collection and Usher Gallery.

The film follows the adventures of the sheep (and young artists) as they tour around a variety of Lincolnshire venues.

Both the film and a selection of sheep have toured to all the Generation ART venues.
