Harrison, K (2021) Jerwood Open Forest Commission: Joyride (2017) [REF2021 collection].

Item Type: Artefact
Creators: Harrison, K
Abstract: Joyride was commissioned through the Jerwood Open Forest Commission in 2017, an initiative established by the forestry Commission and Jerwood Charitable Foundation. It was a community-focused live event, which brought together personal and social narratives around the automotive industry, in the West Midlands, informed by the artist’s upbringing in the post-industrialised Black Country. This Collection comprises a single-component output with contextualising information, evidencing the Joyride (2017) event at Cannock Chase, where a clay replica of the final classic Rover 75, created by Harrison with renowned car-modeller Anthony Tovey, was elevated at sunset and then released down a 20m ramp built using repurposed forestry materials in collaboration with local industry specialists. An invited audience illuminated proceedings with their car headlights. Contextualising information includes a 300 word statement, research timeline, and research questions, as well as documentation of proposals for the project.
