Transported are delighted to announce that we have commissioned Cammdesign to produce their design for a Public Art piece to be located at the RSPB at Frampton Marsh, out of six shortlisted artists.
The Public Art piece will be situated in and directly responds to the site – it will be made from stainless steel and cedar and will take the form of a larger than life reed bed, a representation of the division between land and water. This commission is a continuation of the Structures on the Edge programme that lies along the East Coast, a direct link and a visual metaphor of the area and true ‘Structure on the Edge’. If you’re interested in the Structures on the Edge programme, then why not come with us to see the unveiling of the latest completed work, the Sound Tower at Chapel Six Marshes, on Saturday 5 July? More details here.
The 6 shortlisted mini scale models (maquettes) are being exhibited in selected venues across Boston Borough and South Holland over the next few months, so everyone can see both the chosen design by Cammdesign, and the other amazing designs by the five other shortlisted artists (following the sneak preview that took place at the reserve last Wednesday). The other shortlisted artists, including national artists and architects, were:
- Martin Heron
- Jony Easterby
- Anna Heinrich & Leon Palmer
- Beth Derbyshire
- MSA Gruff – Matthew Springett & Rhys Cannon
The maquettes will be on display at the following locations:
Boston Guildhall – Wednesday 18 to Wednesday 25 June
Ayscoughfee Hall, Spalding – Wednesday 25 June to Wednesday 2 July
Long Sutton Barns, Long Sutton – Thursday 3 to Thursday 10 July
National Centre for Craft and Design, Sleaford – Thursday 10 to Wednesday 16 July
We hope you can pop along and have a look – we’re all very excited about this project!
