Jayne Seddon is an artist, activist and educator based in the North West. She is a conceptual visual artist whose work connects art, ecology and Social Sculpture through the forms of walking, performance; and drawing: in its widest context.

She has made site-responsive public art events, interventions, residencies and exhibitions across the Uk and internationally for over fifteen years.

Her practice focuses upon the use of public space and health. She works with conservation, cultural, education and health organisations. Research methods involve exploring new ways to shift the aesthetic of place – in order to connect people with landscape through collaborative processes. This usually begins with a walk.

She is currently Artist in Residence at LIPA – The Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts, Primary School, working on a major public art project: Revolutionary Nature. A partnership between ART Labs Research Centre at LJMU, National Museums Liverpool, and The Eden Project. The children are creating a wildflower garden in The Liverpool Oratory grounds. The project references Guy Debord’s ‘Society of The Spectacle and is inspired by the 1968 Situations slogan ‘Under the Cobblestones the Beach.’ Methods are focused upon learning through drawing and doing within the context of Conservation Action.

 

Studio Projects are supported by Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces.
