Milton Keynes-based artist Priya Chohan-Padia is developing sculptures that form both boundaries and openings, inspired by landscapes within the city. As a city Milton Keynes is composed of grid roads, clear signage and easily accessible public pathways, how has the collective subconscious of MK been placed onto a well-trodden, designated path? Chohan-Padia's installation Connected to Ground will lead a way for intrepid explorers to veer off this path and navigate Milton Keynes with a renewed sense of curiosity. In acknowledging this, Chohan-Padia will work with copper; a conduit for the flow of our water and powering our homes, usually hidden from show. In this way, copper will be brought to the fore, providing a tangible connection between our internal and external spaces.
Working specifically with found and repurposed materials to connect and weave together these cooper structure(s) the multiple narratives of materials and their significance will be presented and interrogated.
Priya's installation is viewable Friday 14th - Sunday 29th September at Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre
Opening Hours: 10:00-16:00
