CEDA is an Exeter based charity organisation working with disabled adults, children and young people offering a range of meaningful learning and social opportunities. The animals that form our entry for this year's TRAIL exhibition come from our big drama production for 2015, Impisi.
Impisi is a parable set in the African bush and written by a Devon-based disabled writer Clive Essame. It tells the story of the struggle between two different species to overcome their historic prejudices against each other. The lion, hyenas, meerkats and vultures are all key characters.
The pieces you see are created by disabled artists supported by CEDA's artist in residence Ros Hammond. A range of recycled materials were used to create the pieces including old t-shirts, plastic bottles, reclaimed wood and polystyrene.
The lion's face has been entirely carved from polystyrene by Ros and coated in a weather proof varnish.
