George Storm Fletcher – Passage

- Location: IT Services

New work by MA Fine Art student George Storm Fletcher will be showcased along one of the University of Leeds iconic walkways as part of Campus Live.
Passage is a new site-specific commission comprised of canvas, paint, and architectural intervention.
The brief for Campus Live was ‘a sense of belonging’ and Fletcher’s text-based piece will ruminate around support, empathy and disclosure.
The piece will be visible from inside and outside the corridor forming the elevated walkway between IT Services and the Health Sciences Library (next to the Roger Stevens Building).
Campus Live is an exciting programme of activity taking place throughout the autumn term which celebrates our University community.
About George Storm Fletcher
George Storm Fletcher is a printmaker, performance artist, and menace. They originally hail from Ely, in the Fens of South-East England, but are now based in Leeds.
Fletcher is at their best when being outrageously queer, playful, and heartfelt. In recent years this has cumulated into a series of text-based public interventions, with their trademark, immediate, DIY aesthetic.
In our society, speaking out and using your agency can ostracise you. It is exactly their refusal to be passive that leads Fletcher to reclaim, and lean into, their nickname of being a ‘menace’.
