STUDENTS at Barnsley College had a chance to show their creativity through a performance art show as part of their end-of-year project.

Four higher education students on the BA Hons fine art course got involved in the college-first event.

Alla Laycock’s ‘River of Memory’ was a live virtual reality (VR) performance projected onto a screen using a VR headset.

Marks, colours and lines were used to tell the story, revealing ‘unconscious thoughts’ and interpretation of memory.

Anna Ngahan’s piece was a large tree installation made from recycled plastic bags to emphasise how the continued use of plastics will affect the future.

Elizabeth Ashton’s piece was a representation of how she has, and will continue to, face her fears of being a mother, a nurse, an artist and a survivor of domestic abuse.

Finally, E-Jay Dawber’s performance was about gender identity and the continued struggle felt every day being non-binary.

Peter Lawton, higher education pathway leader for creative industries, added: “The students have worked hard and their creativity has been demonstrated by their brilliant pieces.

“The show was amazing, very thought provoking and entertaining.”
