Installing The Fall Of The Majestic Elk

by Chantal

On Friday and Saturday we installed The Fall Of The Majestic Elk at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

The install went well and was a tiring but thoroughly enjoyable two days. Having collaborated on the works from quite a distance over the last year (myself in Southampton and Dean in the West Midlands) it was both exciting, and a little nerve wracking, to see how our works actually communicated together when in the same space. I was really pleased with the outcome and think the show looks pretty damn good!

 

Big thank you’s go out to our fantastic curator Anneka French, Terry Melbourne who was a star with all the tricky install stuff not to mention drilling the 20 huge Cotswald stones for my relics!, and the talented Martin Prichard who came to the gallery on Saturday and took some fantastic photos which you can see if you click on the link below:
