New displays for November by Ellie Thompson, Green Arts Oxfordshire Network and African Studies
Walk by and explore “Mine’s Not a High Horse”, "African Studies at the Oxford Academy" “Lightning The Way” and “Energy Prices & The Climate Crisis”
Mine’s Not a High Horse: Ellie Thompson consistently exercises her hapless characters. Her interest in schadenfreude and a cartoonish sense of humour informs each of her soft sculptures. Her characters are at once extinct and alive, forever stuck in a sticky situation. The only fabric she uses is felt. Schadenfreude is an interesting means of reflection. Ellie loves being part of a community of the ‘failed’, and knowing that’s okay.
African Studies at the Oxford Academy: Natty Mark Samuels is a poet, writer and teacher, living in Oxford. He is the founder of African School, which was set up in 2009 to introduce African Studies to the general public.
