Arnolfini - est 1961

Juneau Projects was formed by Phil Duckworth and Ben Sadler in 2001. They specialise in collaborative public artworks, developed with and for the communities that will interact with them on a day-to-day basis.

Working across a broad range of media including sculpture, animation, print-making, performance and music, as well as public art, their practice looks at the relationship between society, culture and the natural world, bringing people together to work with them in a hands-on way. They are interested in the urge people have to be creative, how that has manifested throughout history and how to work with groups to create work together.

In response to being selected for their public art commission with Arnolfini, Juneau Projects said: “We’re looking forward to meeting the staff and students of UWE Bristol and the local community around Frenchay campus. We’re keen to work with them to create something that is a celebration of the way nature can integrate itself and we hope that making space for nature, even in the smallest places can be part of the message of the piece.

“We want participants in the project to help develop these ideas and work in a hands-on way on the final sculptures. We’re looking forward to working with the university and contractor VINCI Building to site the pieces in a location where they will be both visually striking and create a unique area for contemplation within the community.”
