Hilda’s granddaughter, Rebe Winn, has achieved something really big and we wanted to let you know all about it!
Rebe is a sixth former at Truro High School, and a piece of her artwork has been selected to be featured at Tate Modern in London!
Against hundreds of entrants from across the world, Rebe’s GCSE piece entitled ‘Deterioration’ was chosen to show in the Tate’s iconic Turbine Hall later this month.
Tate Modern challenged young people aged 15–25 worldwide to submit original artwork exploring the future of art and creativity by learning from the past and looking at the present.
Rebe’s piece of 3D Photography explores the theme of ‘Vanitas’: a style of artwork which includes various symbolic objects designed to remind the viewer of their mortality. Combining this traditional style of still life painting with a contemporary, mixed media approach, the artwork transforms photography into sculpture investigating time, degradation and change in a highly physical way.
Joint Head of Art, Mrs Judith Tutin said: “Over the years, Rebe has developed a strong conceptual style which demonstrates an impressive maturity for an artist of her age. We are incredibly proud to see her talent recognised by one of the most prestigious art institutions in the country and can’t wait to see her work in a space which has hosted some of the world’s most memorable and acclaimed works of contemporary art.”
Congratulations to Rebe and to proud grandmother Hilda!
