Commissions

‘Elements (Salt Field No.3)’ – a commission for the 2016 inaugural installation of Elements Gallery, London, curated by Rebecca Feiner

A development of the original ‘Salt Field’ concept with a site-specific installation for an external courtyard space, responding to the elements over an extended period of time. ‘Elements (Salt Field No.3)’ is formed of a graduation of salt blocks, reducing in density and number, creating a visual response to notions of entropy and decay.

 

‘Salt Field’ – commission and solo exhibition for HOUSE 2014 as part of the Brighton Festival (invited guest artist Yinka Shonibare MBE)

An installation formed of a field of salt with a continuous drip of gravity-fed water; salt dissolving and recrystallising, literally migrating across the field during the course of the festival. The physical movement of salt connected with the wider themes of the Festival: migration, refuge and territory.

 

‘Salt Licks’ – commission for Lincolnshire County Council, 2010 to 2018 (unbuilt)

A two-storey structure of salt: a white canvas facing the North Sea designed to weather away over time revealing the marks left by the sun, rain and wind-blown sand: A corollary of the eroding coastline and a vital link to the sea to which the salt returns, in so doing making reference to the immutable nature of salt which – irrespective of any process it is subjected to – reforms always in its natural cubic-crystalline form.
