Tate-inspired shipwreck proposed for Inner Market
SCULPTURES inspired by the installations at the Tate Modern Turbine Hall are set to be commissioned to fill the Inner Market.
The brief given to students on the new College of Further Education Creative and Digital Arts Higher National Diploma course surrounded the theme ‘mercantile’ – or the role of trade – in the island.
It is hoped that the completed project will be instated by 15 January 2018 and will remain in place for a year. The market’s landlords, McAulay, have put forward a £7,500 grant to fund the construction of all of the three different projects.
A pitch by the eight students took place at Space 10 gallery and studio on Tuesday with Sonia Taylor, Bailiwick Estates director, Kieran Wyatt-Nicolle from Space 10, and head of concept at Specsavers, Richard James, in attendance.
The panel gave encouraging feedback on the ‘ambitious’ presentation which detailed the student’s devised plans for a life-size shipwreck within the Inner Market.
