A public art commission for Spring Fling 2017
EDGE is a public art project by Robbie Coleman & Jo Hodges commissioned by Upland for Spring Fling 2017.
Let EDGE whisper to you of parted lovers, lost sailors and forgotten journeys. Coleman and Hodges intervene in the ancient conversation between land and sea, creating a ghost tideline along Carrick foreshore that reveals stories of arrivals, departures, of distance and loss.
EDGE is a ghost tideline that follows and entwines with the existing one at Carrick Foreshore, formed using detritus collected along the coast together with curious objects and artifacts large and small, given to, created or found by the artists. These clusters of objects form fragments of mysterious narratives and forgotten stories, some real, some imagined, some playful, others full of sadness and loss. The stories explore the nature of the link between this land and distant places and become part of the ancient tidal conversion between the sea and the shore.
The new tideline will be full of surprises, mysteries and revelations and visitors will be able to explore details of the work using the age-old skills of beach combing.
EDGE took place over Spring Fling weekend at Carrick Foreshore, Nr Knockbrex, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4UE.
