No Match, the latest Contemporary Heritage commission, awarded to international sculptor Claire Morgan, is a site specific, sculptural installation at Helmshore Mills Textile Museum.
No Match is inspired by Claire’s discoveries during her research residency at the mill in October 2011. Claire spent time meeting ex-mill workers, reading accounts of their experiences and listening to recordings. Despite the daily dangers they had faced, she found the workers still held fond memories of the mill.
The large scale installation is suspended in the Devil Hole, where danger arose from mans’ attempt to harness nature's power, through intense heat, noise, pressure, smoke, fire and frequently blood.
No Match is commissioned by Mid Pennine Arts in collaboration with Lancashire County Council. Contemporary Heritage is an ambitious contemporary art programme inspired by historic sites across Lancashire. The installations animate each site and offer visitors a rare chance to experience major works of art by artists of national and international standing outside a city environment.
