Explore Our Campus- The Pursuit of Knowledge

This week Explore Our Campus focuses on the Pursuit of Knowledge or the Blue Boy as it is more often affectionately known. This sculpture is the work of artist Iain McColl.

In the film above one of our Curators Sarah discusses the sculpture and in particular the recent wool installation at the artwork by artists Gardner and Gardner. This installation Peace Be With You- The Blue Boy was the result of wool created on the peacemakers loom – a ten day residency, split between October 2019 and February 2020.   A temporary community was created as students and staff joined Gardner & Gardner in the repetitive, contemplative action of knitting on the loom.

The Pursuit of Knowledge was our featured Object of the Week earlier this month.
