Second Press Release: Belvoir Artist-in-Residence


'New Sculpture Trail Planned for the Vale of Belvoir
“Belvoir 3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw”


reclaimed, recycled, raw = sustainable sculpture


An invitation is being issued to art students across the UK to apply for the "Belvoir 3Rs", challenging them to submit concepts for large-scale outdoor sculptures along a trail in the Vale of Belvoir, a stone’s throw from Belvoir Castle – home of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

A project conceived by award-winning sculptor Laury Dizengremel, the “Belvoir 3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw” sculpture competition / challenge is one way to further sensitize local residents and art students throughout the UK to issues of sustainability. It’s also a great vehicle to allow emerging sculptors to come up with innovative ways of using reclaimed, recycled and raw materials from the local area. The sculptures created by them must last a minimum of one year in the beautiful but often harsh rural East Midlands environment.

Besides opening the challenge up nationally to art students from A level to practice-based PhD courses, Laury is involving students from the area’s secondary school, Belvoir High School in Bottesford, who will workshop with her their own ideas for a sustainable sculpture using such materials.

To be fair, she’s also giving a chance to one of the 12 primary schools in the immediate area to come up with a concept as well. Both schools projects will be created on the trail along with those selected from amongst the national competitors.

The Duchess of Rutland is the project’s first patron, donating 1800 bulbs which were removed from the Castle last year to be replaced by new energy light bulbs.

A full brief and entry forms for the challenge are available from www.laurydizengremel.com/Belvoir or can be requested from Laury via her artist@belvoircastle.com e-mail address.
