B-SIDE FESTIVAL 2018
Congratulations to Upper Sixth artist Lily Lloyd who has been selected as one of three young artists to be a Bursary Artist at the b-side Art Festival based in Weymouth and Portland in September.
Lily will be based at a community farm on Portland called Fancy’s Farm, making films and photography as well as diary notes and written responses to the work that takes place on the farm. She is also going to produce resin sculptures within Portland stone, which incorporate text, stitching and drawings that relate back to the role that the farm plays within the local community.
For her Pre-U Art course, she has produced films, sculptures, photographs, resin work and drawings. Over the past 18 months, Lily has been making work focused around Portland, mostly photography and short films, which have responded to the community, landscape and buildings of the island.
