Thames Drawing #4 at Richmond Bridge Boathouse 5, TW9 1TH.14th September 2017 - 1st October 2017
Location: Richmond Bridge Boathouse 5, TW9 1TH.
I worked with Master boatbuilder Mark Edwards and created a 4-meter long linear sculpture, in the form of a scaled 'map' of a 28-mile section of the River Thames using wood from decommissioned boats that spent their lifetime on the River.
We adapted techniques specific to wooden boat building, and employed them to produce a piece of sculpture made from unique materials which pay tribute to their history. The work marks the points where the tributaries and ‘lost’ London rivers feed into the Thames. This exhibition and residency are supported using public funding by Arts Council England and is delivered in partnership with Totally Thames 2017 festival along with their "Working River" project.
Meet the Artist every Friday-Sunday for informal Q&A at the exhibition.
