An artist is spending the day working naked as part of an unusual installation at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA).
Jade Montserrat said her No Need for Clothing drawing installation performance “speaks of commodity fetishism, engaged in combat between histories of colonialism and today’s realities”.
Mrs Montserrat studied for a Masters degree at NUA in 2011 and was awarded the Jerwood Student Drawing Prize 2017. Caroline Fisher, gallery curator at NUA, said it was an excellent opportunity to welcome her back.
She said: “It was fantastic news to hear Jade had won the award and we are really grateful that she agreed to perform her drawing installation here.
“A lot of our Fine Art students have come along and it is great for them to see this.”
The East Gallery in St Andrews Street is currently exhibiting drawings from this year’s Jerwood Drawing Prize.
