National Waterfront Museum
The work references the experience of change and regeneration; a process that Swansea has experienced over generations, and is no more evident than in the architectural development of the museum itself.
The sculpture consists of a wall built between the old and new parts of the Museum with the ‘front’ facing the new part and protecting the old. The wall is built from very human items: chairs, tables, cabinets and other furniture, to suggest a level of immediacy and strength-of- feeling that this was put up rapidly with whatever was to hand. As time has gone on the wall has softened and a passageway has appeared. People can go through if they want.
