A site specific installation in the Dove Cote studio, Snape Maltings, commissioned by Aldeburgh Music for the Snape Proms.
About the work:
The land and the sea are engaged in a continuous cycle of exchange. We give to the sea (our waste) and the sea takes away (coastal retreat).
But the sea also gives back. On each tide, thousands, perhaps millions, of pieces of man-made debris are deposited on Suffolk beaches: our plastic line in the sand.
Lines of exchange is a snapshot of these deposits: incomplete (only those items that are small and ‘threadable’ with minimum intervention are included) and undersized (just a fraction of the thousands of pieces that Fran has collected could be included).
