Jigsaws, paintings and sculptures make up exhibition

An exhibition exploring the use of sculpture, painting, video and photography within the context of fine art has opened at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

The Hanover Eleven project is the fourth collaborative exhibition devised and curated by UCLan’s second year fine art students. It includes an oil on canvas painting inspired by Russian feminist punk rock protest group Pussy Riot, a honeycomb shaped sculpture exploring how people react to small spaces and a model of New Zealand’s South Island made up of hundreds of jigsaw pieces.

Ruth Tyson who created the jigsaw art commented: “I’m really interested in cartography and I liked the idea of using jigsaw puzzle pieces in an unusual way. I actually lived in Christchurch, New Zealand, as a child and this was my way of exploring some very early memories.”

The Eleven exhibition is open to the public until Tuesday 25 February 10.00am – 5.00pm at UCLan’s Hanover Building, Bhailok Street.
