CUBEOpen 2011

My film 'That Roads May Rise' has it's first showing as part of the CUBEOpen 2011 in Manchester.

The film documents a 3.7 second shot blasting at an aggregate quarry. The stone is Pre-Cambrian, 1,000 million years old, too old for fossils. The stone will be crushed into 10mm scalpings to make roads and runways. The stone is valued for it's lack of shine and it's non-skid properties.

The film was made whilst artist in residence at a working aggregate quarry and was generously supported by ACW, Elbowroom and Tarmac.

This is an installation created as part of a sculpture walk for Powys Arts Month's 'Made in Knucklas' event at Knucklas Castle near Knighton. It is a small circle or stockade of white chestnut palings, which I have recycled from my 2008 installation 'Fence' . The structure alludes to the lost military architecture of Knucklas Castle but is deliberately small and vulnerable, suggesting 'defensiveness' as well as 'defence'.
