Rock of Ages2019
A site responsive sculpture installed in an ancient church in the village of Well, North Yorkshire.
It is created from woven willow and felt made from the wool of the local Masham sheep. Hay, straw, baler twine and bale netting are felted into the surface. It is suspended from elastic bungee cord which stretches up to the far corners of the church roof.
This giant, fabricated rock represents the layering of the history of Well church and the community that has built it up over centuries. The rock holds a still physical presence while the taught, red suspension cords cutting across the space of the ecclesiastical architecture suggest a connection to something beyond the physical.
