Arnolfini - est 1961

Artists Juneau Projects collaborated with students from Elmlea Primary School, St Mary Redcliffe Primary School and Frome Vale Academy to sculpt, draw and cut-out a collaborative moss habitat that will fill Arnolfini’s second floor gallery, exploring this microscopic world and the creatures that live there.

Moss grows all around us, in the country and in the city, on buildings, trees, rocks, paving slabs and many more places. It’s one of the earliest lifeforms to have colonised land. Inside a clump of moss, no matter how tiny, lives a whole world of microscopic creatures such as the tardigrade, a tiny creature with eight legs that can survive the toughest condition.

Come and explore the moss habitat in Arnolfini’s second floor gallery to learn more. Free entry.

This exhibition is in collaboration with our partners Bridges for Communities‘ Bristol School Linking programme. Bristol School Linking twins year 5 primary classes from schools across Bristol’s diverse communities for a yearlong programme of building friendships, encouraging a sense of togetherness and challenging prejudice and stereotypes.

This exhibition is part of a public art project happening across 2022-23, a collaboration between Arnolfini and UWE Bristol, to create a new public artwork for UWE Frenchay with artists Juneau Projects.
