Beached – Sculpture voyage and install

Posted in Exhibitions by Andy Wicks on 15 July, 2012

My sculpture ‘Beached’ has been installed at WW Gallery’s Patio Project for the last week exposed to the same harsh British summer we’ve all been subjected to. I prefabricated the sculpture in my studio and instead of hiring a van decided to transport all 50 foots worth of timber the 30 minute walk from studio to site by hand. Roping in some muscle for hire we broken it down into parts, strapped it to a couple of dollies and started our journey. Below are some shots of her maiden voyage through to reconstruction at the Patio Project.

Beached is viewable 24/7 at 30 Queensdown Road, London E5 8NN until 29th July.

Many thanks goes to the generous support of Alan Magee for his logistical prowess and muscle along with the keen eye and steady hand of Marion May for her excellent documentation of this wacky adventure.
