Wend

Part three of the Power of Constraint trilogy (Trawl – Harbour – Wend)

“What do you want to leave behind?”

Wend was installed in Medium Rare window gallery for three weeks. The initial call out for SMS responses started 2 weeks before the official opening and continued for another 2 weeks allowing passers by to contribute to the growing work. Each response was carefully hand painted onto muslin and then wrapped around a ballast type object, before being secured by red rope. These objects developed greater weight as they nestled together and were continuously added to over the timeframe.
