154 Active Summer 2012
A 154ft long Olympic Relay Race comprising 308 sculptural
athletes in a polychromatic blaze of motion and colour
During September Faceless Company were commissioned by Barnsley Council to create a piece of sculpture with schools in Barnsley and the London Borough of Newham, along with members of the public from Barnsley. Newham hosted the Olympic Games this Summer and is 154 miles away from Barnsley as the crow flies. Faceless invited participants to create a unique piece of sculpture with an Olympic theme, and over 300 school pupils and 240 members of the public participated in workshops creating wire figures, that combined created a 154ft long ‘relay race of 308 runners’. The wire-formed relay runners and spectators were just 40cm tall and made from one continuous piece of wire 13 meters long. 10 primary schools from Newham and Barnsley took part and the finished piece was exhibited at Canon Hall on Friday 19th October, as part of an event involving pupils from London and Barnsley, where our Snailympics also put in an appearance.
Spirit of the Olympics
An Olympic themed project for pupils from the South East of the Wakefield District, Funded by Hemsworth Arts and Community College
Faceless worked with around 15 groups of pupils from schools in the Hemsworth area, South East of the Wakefield District, delivering sculpture workshops inspired by athletic images and the dynamics of movement. The project culminated in an exhibition at Hemsworth Arts and Community College and The Hepworth Wakefield in June 2012.
