Blue lias stone, bed sheets, twine and rope
Site-specific installation in Lyme Regis Arts Festival Sculpture Trail
Wrapt was directly influenced by the fabric of the building that stood at the site hundreds of years ago. Once a 14th century medieval hospital, all that now remains is the stone well used solely to supply water to the patients, many of whom were suffering from leprosy. Stitched bedsheets and blue lias stone connected interior with exterior, whilst trees took on a vital supporting role as Nature’s breathing pillars - the structures around which everything is wrapped and suspended.
