Rock Displacement

DVD, cast concrete, 2010

In this project a rock was removed from the foreground of a picturesque view in the Lake District National Park. A mould was made from it, which was used to create concrete copies of the rock. One of these concrete copies was taken back to the location and placed within the scene in exactly the same spot from which the original was removed. Video documentation of the removal and replacement of the rock are exhibited alongside multiple copies of the rock, which are randomly distributed around the gallery creating a cloned artificial /natural environment which the viewer can wander through.

This project was developed while on residency at Art Gene, Barrow in Furness and has been exhibited at Camberwell Space, London - click here for press release.
