Rachelle Wins Harris Federation Art Prize

20190710 202453Sixth former Rachelle won the Harris Federation Art Show prize for Key Stage 5 at a presentation last night.

She won for her film, Lost at Sea, inspired by the myth of Drexciya, which is based on the Middle Passage, the route for ships carrying enslaved African people from one geographical location to another across the Atlantic Ocean.

The world of Drexciya begins with the creation of an underwater country populated by the unborn children of pregnant African women thrown off of slave ships. In this piece Rachelle has created a performance piece inspired by this myth. She embodies this idea through her character ‘Drexciya’, which we first encounter submerged beneath the sea. As she rises we see her searching for the souls of the lost children, which are represented through the hands.


Our Key Stage 4 representative at the awards was Zainab, for her artwork A Single Fugitive (pictured below), made from tape, wood polish, gold foil, and volcanic sand. Zainab was inspired by the ruins of Pompeii and the ancient civilisation that occupied it. Zainab’s work is a multimedia cast of a body that is positioned like the bodies that were found in Pompeii.
