Olympic legacy project helps Norwich artist

A young Norwich artist's work will come alive next week thanks to an Olympic legacy project.

Rachel Philips' art performance, called Grey Area, will be at the Forum and Playhouse Bar in St George' Street on Monday, March 26 from 2pm.

Together with fellow student James Compton, the third year Norwich University College of the Arts student will be taking part in an art performance which will see the two students simultaneously transform their own 4ft by 4ft boxes to represent the other's box.

One box will be black and the other white, which will then be filled in by the young artists to represent the other's box. The boxes will be placed in Norwich venues the Forum and the Playhouse Bar, where there will also be a live feed which 'represents the invisibility between the two people as well as the two artists'.

The spaces at the Forum and the Playhouse Bar have been donated through somewhereto_, a project which is funded by the Legacy Trust UK and aims to match young people aged 16 to 25 with the space they need to do the things they love within sport, culture and the arts.
