Outreach Artist Project

Artists Sarah Evans is creating activities to accompany Krijn de Koning’s new sculpture at The Gibberd Garden. She will focus her work on the interplay between Art, Architecture and Nature, themes which connect with Sir Fredrick Gibberd design and de Koning’s new work.

..the idea was to blend houses and landscape to everyone's benefit, tree planting had high priority, sculpture was to make the arts an everyday experience.

Online workshops

Join us for two online workshops playing with collage to create new imaginative interventions in your home. These sessions will introduce you to the founding ideas for Harlow where nature and art were considered an essential aspect of the everyday experience. Hear about Sarah’s art practice and how she uses these techniques in her work.

Sarah Evans

Sarah Evans’ work is based in drawing in expanded forms using animation, moving image, collage, installation and events, with a focus on the process. Nature and landscape are recurring themes which capture narratives of human relations to the landscape. Evans constructs histories through interweaving fact and fictions. She is a founding member of artist-led Aid & Abet based in Cambridge. Aid & Abet tested its model over a number of territories, curatorial and collaborative practice through a variety of project spaces, residencies and commissions over the past decade. Evans has worked with CB1 Cambridge Development, Trust New Art - National Trust commission, NW Cambridge Development artist residency - University of Cambridge, Paper Gallery, Manchester and Market Gallery Huddersfield.
