Kindred Spectres is a multidisciplinary Fine Art project run by the artist Miriam Austin and Bosse and Baum Gallery, London. The project explores questions about ecology, interspecies relationships and colonialism, and will involve developing a body of sculpture and video for two exhibitions in London in late 2020/ early 2021. Volunteers will gain experience working with a range of sculptural materials and mould making techniques and be involved in the process of working closely with an artist to develop new works for exhibition.
The sculptural process will involve learning to work with silicone, jesmonite, plaster, pigment, resin and dried plants. Some of the work will involve making moulds and taking casts from these moulds, while other work will involve quite focussed small scale work with silicone and petals, which would suit students who are patient and have an attention to detail.
The work will take place outdoors, on Woodstock Rd, Oxford, July- October 2020. Volunteers are welcome to join when they are available during this time, and social distancing will be observed during all working processes.

Spaces from August onwards are limited, though I will try to fit as many students in as possible. There are currently volunteer slots available on Friday and Saturday 24th- 25th July, and any volunteers available on these days will be welcomed!
