Welcome Warning

Marine tarpaulin, sand

2014

 

Four temporary public works on the harbour front in Bristol based on the humble sand bag, an integral but backstage aspect of any theatre set. Anthropomorphic qualities within their lumpen forms reflect an innate want to personify inanimate objects; allowing them to become both the performer and the prop in a scenario without clear narrative. Part of an ongoing research project into performing sculpture.
