For the final instalment of Common Ground; twelve months of collaborations between artists Yinka Ilori, Ibiye Camp, Tom Dale, Izzy Parker, Groundwork and our communities, Parker has led a collaborative 6 week project with students from Stephenson Academy, exploring the theme of time and identity.
In celebration of Milton Keynes 50th anniversary Parker asked students to explore their own identities by teaching them how to design and make their own signet rings, while she explored her own by creating a new installation piece that is homage to the recent passing of her father.
The project culminates with an immersive exhibition featuring signet rings made by the students, Parker’s new hanging installation comprising of thousands of hung paper cones and a short documentary (above) of the project created by filmmaker Naveed Nasir. Showing at Milton Keynes Arts Centre until 11 March 2017.
The immersive skyscape of thousands of hung paper drinking cones each strung upside down and empty represent every hour passed since her father’s death in Dec 2015, the mass of monochrome expresses the memory of an all-encompassing state of mind.
