THE FOLK HALL, 95 HIGH STREET, PORTISHEAD, BS20 6PR.
FIELD by artist Hamish Young is a specially commissioned artwork created from 27,000 hand-cast plaster shells, moulded from shells collected from around the south west coastline. In this work, each shell represents a local resident - each of the 27,000 people who call Portishead ‘home’.
The installation will be housed in The Folk Hall, an accessible community space in the heart of Portishead High Street.
Hamish and ArtPort invite everyone to come together and be a part of this organic art installation. Whether you live in Portishead, or are visiting our wonderful festival, there is a shell for you to choose and take away with you to a different place, a new home. The gradual erosion of the sculpture field will be documented in a time-lapse film and you will become a part of the story.
