At last, I'm the proud owner of a Ceramic crested tank - a bit like the one spied in the junk shop in Bexhill-On-Sea in 1997 (?) whilst researching the installation for that show with Eddie at the De La Warr Pavilion that I can't remember the name of, the one where I cast Modernist, porthole type parts of the pavilion in white concrete and marble dust and wallpaper imprints (The Celebrated Violinist etc) but wanted to make a giant white and gilt ceramic-looking tank souvenir of Bexhill. Well, maybe I will.
I like the inverse image as it seems to make the tank - heavy by nature in reality - float.
Framework for half of the glass camouflage-bunker sculpture in lovely powder-coated metal, nestled in the grass infont of the studio bunker, itself camouflaged by creping greenery. The title still evades me - 'Safe as Houses' seems too obtuse.
