About

We are delighted to announce the creation of a major new art commission for the University by internationally-renowned artist Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva.

Since 2013, Elpida has shown twice at the prestigious Venice Biennale representing both her native Macedonia and the Vatican. Her imaginative use of raw materials was demonstrated in a solo exhibition at the Djanogly Gallery in 2016, in which caul fat and other food waste products were transformed into stunningly beautiful artworks. In 2018 she won an open competition to create a new work for the University Park campus to be sited in the vicinity of Lakeside Arts.

Dead Elm trees felled as part of the University’s ambitious arboretum project have provided the main sculptural elements of this work. Student and staff volunteers will participate in its production over an eight-week period in the autumn term. The new work will be unveiled in December 2018, coinciding with the Weston Gallery’s Sylva exhibition.
