The Silver Street Project
In a semi-demolished Victorian wine merchant’s warehouse in Bradford-on-Avon, I had the chance to make a site-responsive installation during a two-week period in July 2018. Segregated by the bar-like joists of the missing ceiling, the stacked spaces of the stripped-out building evoked notions of transcendence. Its long-time use as a wine merchant also evoked thoughts of the transubstantiation of wine and other Christian beliefs.
The Daoist consideration of the inevitability of change, the cyclical nature of time and a holistic perspective on the universe underpinned my considerations.
The scale of the works and the space in which they were situated stimulates the viewer to consider themselves in their relationship to the work to activate and complete it.
