North Wind, 2020 by Frances Carlile
Boat Sculpture North Wind, is constructed from partly burnt heather. A complex web structure describes the form of a long narrow boat, just big enough for one person. Pinned together with thorns gathered from blackthorn hedgerows, it is elevated off the ground by hazel saplings, as if drifting down a flooded river and caught between trees. A few fragments of heather have been gilded. There are fairy tales woven into this work; the idea of the impossible task, “by morning you will construct an entire boat from fragments of heather and it will become gold.”
