Course - Laura Ellen Bacon


Hall Place, Kent
Dicky Meadows willow

Course is deeply curvaceous work that descends into the River Cray, a chalk stream*, at Hall Place.  Being peaceful yet uncanny, having a quiet, seeping stillness but also a momentum that seems to be guiding its weight towards the clear depths below. The ‘carved’ channel within the work carries an abstract notion of the weight of the water on a journey that we can only witness a small part of.  Created in collaboration with WWF-UK, stemming from Hall Place’s summer exhibition Watershed: Art, play and the politics of water, curated by Artwise Curators.

*The River Cray is one of 200 chalk streams in the world (85% of which can be found in the UK).
