[M]anchester based artist Kayt Hughes’ latest project ‘Balance, Stack, Play’ has launched at Forestry Commission’s Grizedale Forest.

Using her signature wooden blocks, Kayt invites the viewers to build their own sculpture, photograph it and upload onto twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #balancestackplay .

At the end of the show, Kayt will select a winning sculpture to be scaled up and become the next sculpture to be added to Grizedale Forest sculpture collection.

Grizedale Forest is the UK’s First Forest for Sculpture – with over 50 sculptures in the forest. This year, Grizedale is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary of arts and culture in the forest.

Kayt generally works with sculpture, using her objects as props or tools for experimentation in galleries. Her synaesthesia connects number, colour, space, sound, shape and mass, and aims to express her subjective interpretation of the world around her

Kayt says, “I am really excited about this interactive element to the work, and I am especially looking forward to selecting a design to make into a sculpture for the forest. It’s going to be really interesting to see how people create their own ideas with the blocks.”

The exhibition runs until 30th April 2018 and has been generously supported by Arts Council England, PLANT and 3rdDimension.
