Window on Blood and Water

The work is a temporary installation at Abbaye Jumieges, near Rouen in France for the festival of Water in the region Seine Maritime. It takes the shape and dimensions of the big arch of the ruined church and fills it with a flow pattern of water and blood from the heart, drawing a link to the nearby river Seine and the Abbey’s violent history over the centuries. The work is 24 m. x 8 m. and is made from split logs and stones from the ruin. The exhibition of 6 works opens on 14th May 2013 and will run for the summer/Autumn season.
