It was refreshing and indeed amazing to visit AMH, in Enniskillen yesterday. They all have been working on a very unique project – with bucket loads of PAVERPOL! Under the watchful eye of Caroline, Mary and the team, a unique project was undertaken.
“On the Rip” is a unique art project funded by PHA through the Clear project, which uses a car art medium to tackle the local lad/ ladette culture of young people going out at weekends “on the rip”
The project has challenged attitudes to drug and alcohol use, drink driving and road safety.
“Don’t Look Back “ is a mixed media art installation created by the young people on our BOOST programme.
Using a car art medium, the art piece captures the fun and happiness of positive emotional well- being, with the front of the car emblazoned with positive imagery, from which a lifesize sculpture of a dancing young man and woman emerge.
In stark contrast , the back of the car conveys all the negativity of poor metal health , and captures the haunted, tormented experience associated with it. A 3d art piece behind the car, with snakes and demons and tormentors completes the art installation, and aptly illustrates why our young people are advising that you “ Don’t Look Back”
So keep your eyes opened on The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Enniskillen to view this masterpiece.
Well done to all – so proud of your enthusiasm and energy in using such a wonderful medium as PAVERPOL!!
