Luke Jerram: Withdrawn
18 April - 27 September 2015
National Trust Leigh Woods
From April 2015 Luke Jerram invites visitors to Leigh Woods in Bristol,
to experience an unexpected encounter with a flotilla of abandoned fishing
boats installed in the depths of the woodland.
A beautiful, surreal and poetic vision in the woods, the sound of the
wind in the trees is reminiscent of the sound of the waves. All of the boats
are pointing the same way as if turned by the tide or moving together.
The boats can be explored by the public. At night the navigation lights of the
boats will come on, and may be spotted blinking in the woodland.
Miles from the sea, how did they get here? Were they left by a receding
tidal surge or a changing coast line? Is this the effect of climate change
or over fishing, causing fish stocks to collapse and with it the industry?
This thought-provoking and engaging installation raises discussion about climate
change, extreme weather, changing ocean temperatures, falling fish stocks and
our impact on the marine environment.
By teaming up with arts and music organisations in Bristol, the boats will
be used as a site for a series of special marine and environmental, sound
installations, lectures, performances and interactive workshops, staged both
in the daytime and at night.
Withdrawn will be open for the public to explore for six months.
The Fishing Industry and Climate Change
Recently large fishing trawlers have been accused of taking too many fish
from the sea causing stocks of some species to collapse. These large boats have
also put many smaller, more sustainable fishing boats out of business.
With the rise in water temperatures caused by climate change, what fish we
have in our sea is also changing. Withdrawn will help raise and discuss these issues in public.
