Giant plaster of Paris models, illustrations for
children’s books and clothing highlighting the dark side of the
fashion industry will be among the student artwork on show at the
University of Wolverhampton exhibition.
The annual undergraduate degree show, Re:View, will take place
at the University’s School of Art & Design from Wednesday 6 to
Saturday 9 June 2012.
Final year students will be exhibiting their projects which
include photography, fine art, animation, computer games design,
film, illustration, graphic communication, interior design, product
design, glass, ceramics, metals, textiles and fashion.
Dean of the School of Art & Design, Dr Bryony Conway, said:
“Our students produce an amazingly diverse range of work that
ranges from thought-provoking to innovative and beautiful. Our
annual undergraduate degree show is an opportunity to celebrate
talent across the board before students launch themselves into
This year there are two special events happening alongside the
show. A fashion show by BA (Hons) Fashion and Textile students will
be held at the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton on Wednesday 6 June
2012 at 7pm and a film screening by BA (Hons) Video and Film
Production students will take place on Thursday 7 June at 7pm at
the School of Art and Design.
Among those exhibiting at the degree show is BA (Hons) Fashion
and Textile student Jessica Janiak who has created six
garments portraying the darker side of the fashion industry,
including pollution, ‘fast’ fashion, celebrity culture and vanity.
She says she was inspired by a trip to India with the University
and wanted to create items that are desirable yet meaningful.
Blair Frame will be exhibiting his illustrations for a
children’s book. The BA (Hons) Illustration student says: “The show
is the culmination of three years of work. It is exciting and a bit
scary, but I’m pleased with what I’ve produced.”
Other exhibits include an installation by BA (Hons) Fine Art
student Rachel Ferguson of more than 500 brown paper bags, which
are arranged in rows to explore similarity and difference, and
giant sculptures by Anna Smith made from plaster of Paris, chicken
wire and bandages to represent the body in an alternative way.
