We are pleased to have recently had the oportunity to take on two new and highly enthusiastic interns, who will be working with us for the next six months. They will be working full time, helping us with ongoing projects and bringing some of their own practises and ideas.
Elly Langlois is joining us all the way from Devon, having just obtained a degree in sculpture at Winchester School of Art.
She has come to In-Situ to further her work exploring the similarities between people. Within an increasingly globalised world, her interests are in how people from very different places can come to similar conclusions, and how people from similar places can come to extremely different ones. Whilst here, Elly's plans are to focus particularly on points of culture clash, as well as points which can be linked, through similarity, to places elsewhere.
Hannah Stringer is local to Pendle and has recently attained a BA Hons. degree in fine art at the University of Aberystwyth.
The main focus of interest in her most recent projects has revolved around ideas of happiness and understanding within communities and ourselves, be that through exploring clusters of fictional cannibals, reliant on one another for survival or through interacting with university students and their families, in need of a pop up, fun, creative and recyclable shelter. Over the next six months and beyond she hopes to continue exploring people's ideas of happiness and promoting understanding of local and global issues.
