From Animation to Ceramics and Photography to Architecture, the very best of UCA postgraduate student work is set to go on display to the public this month.
The shows, which begin at the end of August, will exhibit work created by students from UCA’s campuses in Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham and Rochester.
Postgraduate Subject Leader for the School of Craft and Design, Rebecca Skeels, said: “This year’s MA students have not only developed their design skills, reflective practices and produced high quality finished pieces, they have also collaborated across the craft and design disciplines throughout their course, producing exhibitions, press articles, installation pieces, winning competitions, winning commissions and much more.
“Each student’s work is ambitious, unique, well thought-out and inspirational; the group is diverse in the areas they have researched, as well as what they have produced.”
Previous MA shows have seen visitors impressed by the range of work on display, with highlights including the work of MA Fine Art student Paul Smith, who retrieved the 30-year old wreckage of a car and recast the vehicle into an exact replica of the shovel used to recover it, as well as MA Photography student Martin Greenwood, whose series of photographs explored the way people attempt to control natural spaces.
