Proposal for Millennium Centre Cardiff.
By Rachael Smith
For the Attention of: Artistic Director.
I propose the following:
To make a creative installation of suspended figurative designs in ceramics, acrylic or other suitable materials, to be installed in an elevated position suspended on frames already in position at the Millennium Centre foyer.
These figures will reflect many artistic physical movements created by both circus and dance performers, which relate directly to the themes of the Millennium Centre activities. This exhibition is intended to be inclusive in its design, for those who may not dance, perform but to inspire the feeling of spatial physicality and enable the viewers to have a sense or feeling of movement, this is intended to be in a free arena that can be viewed by anybody, to make the experience as inclusive as possible.
These figures are a reflection of the Artists previous experience’s as a circus performer, now no longer experienced as disabled yet relating to the knowledge of movement and ability to still produce movement threw creative pursuits as an artist.
The size of figures will be between 3 foot and 6 foot some hand built and some cast from a performer and made in a variation of materials. Lighting will accentuate the feeling of movement, the objects themselves will not be moving, but through light, shadow and reflection the illusion of movement will be achieved. To include this exhibition in the foyer of the Millennium Centre, would not only enhance the environment within the public Centre, promoting a new dimension to elevate the environment of this iconic public building.
This exhibition could be used as an opportunity to encourage new groups, disabilities to visit the building in a positive and inclusive manner. Promoting inclusion and ability of disability.
Any other details will and can be provided upon request.
This exhibition has potential to be a semi permanent installation; the cleaning and maintenance would be low, suggested on a biannual basis.
