The work is a series of tombstones made of ice which melt over the duration of a day, and which commemorate lost species. I have asked Iceland Foods who are unable to help, and worry that small, local traders won’t have the space.
The week in question is – 23-28th Sept. Laura will fill it on the 23rd (which would take about an hour), add the ‘art’ on the morning of the 27th, (again about an hour) and remove the contents entirely on the (early) morning of the 28th (probably less than an hour). Everything is non-toxic – its just ice and paper.
In 2017 Laura did Benthic Caress (Silent Disco in the Sea)
And in 2018, Hydrosapien (Silent Choir), both for Plymouth Art Weekender.
Laura promises to be very kind to any freezer she gets her hands on! Laura adds that it needs to stay in situ in Plymouth however, and she would need access to it at various times during the week rather than literally borrowing the freezer.
Are you able to help? Do you have, or know people who have, access to a freezer in Plymouth?
