This week saw Cloud: Meteoros artist Lucy Orta and HS1 CEO Nicola Shaw judge the entries to the first Terrace Wires in the Community art project.
The winning entry came from Yumna and Asma, from Carlton Primary School. Their submission took inspiration of their school history project about evacuees in WW2.
Judges Lucy Orta and Nicola Shaw also selected a runner up entry, which was created by a group of 15 pupils from Netley Primary School. Their entry took inspiration from their project on the history of the Camden area and the links with Europe created by Eurostar.
The Terrace Wires in the Community project saw entries from Year 5 pupils of Netley Primary School and Carlton Primary School in Camden, all of whom responded to a brief set by Lucy + Jorge Orta to create a piece of art that they would like to see suspended from the Terrace Wires arts space.
The winner will receive a personalised video message from artist Lucy Orta, along with a dance workshop for the whole class from Combination Dance.
HS1 Ltd will provide a new brief to local schools in 2014 to mark the work of David Batchelor, whose artwork ‘Chromolocomotion’ will be exhibited in the station from spring.
St Pancras International is proud to be the home of some specially commissioned pieces of Art.
