Rafał Zajko | St Peter’s School
We Were Here (Producers), 2023
Natural stone powder, bio resin, pigment
This sculpture celebrates past, present and future students and their journey through St Peter’s School. The title refers to the way that schools create ‘producers’: students who leave traces in their school, and then go on to make an impact in the wider world after they leave. It is also a tribute to teachers, and their supervision of students’ growth. The colours match the St Peters School crest: red, blue, green, and yellow.
We Were Here is inspired by weekly workshops that Zajko held with Year 7 students, in 2022–3. Together, they explored the future by discussing what they wanted to change about the present, and what they wanted to keep. They designed time capsules and used Artificial Intelligence to explore the future of living, working, learning and farming in Huntingdon.
