A group of our degree-level Fine Art students have created a thought-provoking installation of artworks to accompany the ‘Power: Freedom to Create’ exhibition at the National Justice Museum, from 21st May.

Work­ing with­in a pre-deter­mined one-metre square for­mat, each artist has devel­oped their own take on the notion of pow­er, either in rela­tion­ship to the con­text of the Nation­al Jus­tice Muse­um itself or soci­ety in a wider sense.

Char­lotte Bain­bridge, 21, is study­ing the Fine Art Prac­tice Foun­da­tion Degree. She said:

I’ve real­ly enjoyed the project and it’s great to get my work out there for peo­ple to see. The sub­ject mat­ter, Pow­er’ was real­ly broad so it gave us all the free­dom to explore our indi­vid­ual ideas and get real­ly cre­ative with it. 

 — Char­lotte Bainbridge

Project Cura­tor, Simon Brown, said: We are delight­ed to have worked with stu­dents from Not­ting­ham Col­lege on this project. They have embraced the brief to give a cre­ative response to the theme of pow­er in jus­tice and the law, and shown remark­able cre­ativ­i­ty and vision in such dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances. I’m very pleased our vis­i­tors will have the chance to see their work.”

The Pow­er: Free­dom to Cre­ate’ exhi­bi­tion, run in part­ner­ship with Koestler Arts, is free-to-view and open to the pub­lic from Fri­day 21st May.

The exhibiting artists and works are:

Drew Scothon

Joshua Cur­tis

Inves­ti­gates the theme of pow­er through cast weapon forms.

Richard Hyde

Ques­tions the uncon­scious influ­ence of hid­den forces, such as CCTV and the inter­net, on our lives.

Char­lotte Bainbridge
