Christie's Art Auction

Students from many of the Harris Academies got a chance to sell their personally made art pieces at Christie's Auction House on Wednesday 18th July 2018.

A short exhibition was followed by each group presenting their work and contextualising their pieces to the buyers. Finally, as one student from each group played the role of the auctioneer, the bidding commenced.

Well done to our students who raised an amazing £150 for Charity and a total of £2800 from all Academies.

This piece was inspired by the photographic prowess of David Hockney and Annette Messager’s use of installation techniques to emphasise the representation in her photography. We recently took part in the Duke of Edinburgh award and this experience led us to recognise the disjoint between the landscapes found in rural and urban areas. Whilst we were on our expedition we photographed ourselves in and amongst nature to represent the coming together of city dwellers in an unfamiliar rural environment. The disjointed and disconnected feelings we recognised were emulated when we investigated the collage and almost cubist style of Hockney’s work. We then visited the Tate Modern and photographed the brutalist architecture, synonymous to urban areas and the ever expanding city skyline of London. We used a film camera, requiring us to develop the photographs in the dark room. This gave us time to dwell on the objects in the photographs we had taken and how these relate to the theme. We created our collage using the juxtaposition of urban and rural images. Hockney purposefully does not create clean, straight edges in his work which emphasises the lack of boundaries in his photography. We used a similar technique to remind us that a world still lies outside of the captured frame, something we must remind ourselves - our world does not finish at end of zone 7.
