Site-Specific #1

Site-Specific Sculpture

The sight specific artwork I created during a collaboration with other artists, the image of a fishwife made out of old fishing nets, which I scavenged locally, was created to commemorate the sinking of the ‘Mary Stanford’ lifeboat, as part of a sculpture walk at Rye Harbour, East Sussex.

The giant birds nest was situated in a bird sanctuary run by the RSPB commissioned by the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve for a visitors open day
