Luke Jerram: Withdrawn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.

Creative Collaborations

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Withdrawn will be open for the public to explore for six months.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 Withdrawn will help raise and discuss these issues in public.
