Residency Award winner’s exhibit goes on display at FACTTuesday 8 November 2016
Artwork produced by the winner of the 2016 Graduate Production Residency Award will go on display at FACT on Thursday 10th November.
Fine Art graduate Amy Worsley joined FACT for a month-long residency in July as part of a partnership between Liverpool Hope University and the media arts centre.
Her resulting artwork will be displayed as part of the exhibition No Such Thing As Gravity, which runs until Sunday 29th January 2017.
This major new group exhibition, curated by London based curator Rob La Frenais, continues a year of art and science at FACT, and explores science as a continuing search for knowledge by addressing questions regarding scientific truths, conspiracy theories, and alternative science.
Speaking about her time at Hope, Amy said: “Liverpool Hope University has the knowledge, resources and tools that enabled me to build a foundation to becoming an artist and teacher. It not only provided the opportunity in creating connections with fellow artists, but also building networks throughout the art industry.”
The FACT+Liverpool Hope Production Residency Award was established in 2015, as part of the overall shift in FACT’s approach to making production a more visible part of the exhibition process, and is hosted in the context of FACTLab - an experimental making space for researchers, technologists and artists to collaborate and produce projects in an open environment. The residency granted Amy funding, and technical support by FACT's technologists and producers throughout the whole creative process and production of her project.
