A Travelling Sealed Bid Auction Exhibition, with all proceeds going to the Nature and Nurture mental health support group.
Curator Lou Hines discusses the ideas behind the exhibition –
“After a visit to a mannequin graveyard I decided to gather a group of volunteers to create a piece of art from their chosen body part. These pieces will be displayed in four venues over 6 weeks.
Alongside will run a sealed bid auction. You can bid by placing a bidding slip in the box that will travel with the pieces or by sending a private message to the Facebook page “The Body Part Art Show 2021”. The online bid must contain the name of your chosen piece, your maximum bid and a contact number. At the end of the six weeks we will crack the box open, look at the online bids and the highest offer on each item will win it.
All proceeds will go to the Nature and Nurture mental health support group for young people. Not only are you supporting mental health in your community it’s also a unique opportunity to own an individual piece of art whilst re using something that would otherwise go to landfill. Just in time to treat yourself or a loved on for Christmas.”
