“Frozen Bodies” found at Galt
Duringa visit to Alexander Galt High School last week, one couldn’t help notice the strange, life-sized bodies that were scattered around the school, some hanging from walls in the halls and in the cafeteria, others sitting in the library. Level five art students from Ms. Gandey’s class created the exhibit called “Frozen Bodies” to “represent the students’ interpretation of consumption and human behavior, be it tangible or metaphorical.”
“”We made the sculptures by first making a body cast,” explained level five student Gayge Dubois, from Stanstead, who was busy critiquing one of the ‘frozen body’ installations in the library with two fellow students. Students then added recycled materials, found objects and other details to their clear, plastic bodies to demonstrate the theme of consumption. Accompanying each body was a list of the materials used in their creation and an artist’s statement by the students.
Art students Gayge Dubois, Tomonori Tanaka and Tawanchai Srihanu in front of their creation called “Warhead” which greeted students entering the cafeteria.
