Students’ Art Exhibition at Manchester Creative Offices, The Hive


Twelve fine art students from Manchester Metropolitan University recently exhibited their mid-semester work over five days at The Hive’s creative office space in Manchester.

Since the very beginning of their course, all twelve talented artists have invested heavily in their respective media, including painting, photography, sculpture, printing, drawing and video.

Frances Blythe exhibited her digital print work, “The photographs form part of a series in which the subjects are asked to engage in a performative activity that absorbs their attention, in this case singing.” Says Frances.

Clara Casian featured her Monitor Installation, Clara said of her work: “The monitor installation channels the relationship between the given distribution of image on a mediated context and the distorted representation of sound and image on a second-layered process which offers alternatives of representation and where the source of the sound becomes the object.”

Sarah Redfern also exhibited in the office space at The Hive, she said: “The works I’ve shown deal with things in the world that are almost nothing, that perhaps were once full of purpose or intent, from which they have been relieved. The jar stopper, seemingly nothing in its isolation, filled with water to its absolute capacity, becomes itself the receptacle, independent from its counterpart. Its supporting shelf, sized exactly for its object, somehow belongs to only it, allowing it a place where its water completes it. The other work I have shown uses small stones, once part of the landscape, which will continue to reduce until they are nothing. Bulging from a paper bag, slumped and almost splitting their container, they assume an almost perfect form, temporarily echoing their original state, whilst never being anything other than what they are.”

The exhibition included many additional works from artists, Maire Byrne-Gascon, Tiago Duarte, Evi Grigoropoulou, Judith Hill, Victoria Mykytiuk, Jo McGonigal, Pitikasem Nilavongse, Eileen O Rourke and Hannah Wiles.

Oliver Butler, project director at The Hive’s workspace in Manchester said: “We have a number of exhibitions and events planned at The Hive in the coming weeks. We recently featured the ‘Future Everything’ exhibition, which was fantastic, and we were really pleased to be able to offer the MMU students an exhibition space for their most recent work, it’s what The Hive is all about.”
