The Boatshed

Event map

An installation combining the sculptural work of Jim Grant with video projection by Phil Dobson and sound by Ben Grant.


 The installation suggests the fragility and potential collapse of natural systems, their decay and renewal. 

The Boat Shed is an 18th century building once used as a Lifeboat house and later by Berwick Salmon fisheries. Jim Grant often works with found or upcycled material. Here he uses the poignant form of a felled and broken tree, screwed and bolted together and suspended by filaments of twine, wire etc. The material has been collected at low tide on the Tweed estuary strongly linking the piece to its location.

 The space is illuminated and animated by Phil Dobson's digitally created flowers which continually evolve suggesting natural cycles, evolution and metamorphosis.

Ben Grant's soundscape, created by layering found and recorded sound, including bird sound recorded from the mudflats of the estuary, fragments of music etc., completes the mood, alternatingly ominous and optimistic, the deluge being a symbol associated with biblical references of redemption and rebirth.
