Benoit Sire


Maritime & Industrial Museum

Benoit has previously worked in the salt marshes near his home in Brittany creating sculptures with salt. Whilst researching ideas for his work for Locws International he discovered that salt had been imported from Brittany to Swansea in Mediaeval times.

As a result he brought salt from France again and created an installation that dealt with the notion of exchange, not only of imported goods but of cultural ideas and traditions.
