Settlement by Rob Mulholland run is extended by popular demand

So many people have visited and been enjoying Settlement at Heysham that we have extend the run until Wednesday 12 September.

Settlement is a brand new temporary work by British sculptor and environmental artist Rob Mulholland, one of five new artworks taking place around Morecambe Bay and is part of the Festival oif the Bay.

Rob Mulholland wil lead workshops on Saturday 15 September. In the free workshops participants will be guided to sculpt their own interpretation of Anglo Saxon artefacts using clay. Led by British sculptor and environmental artist Rob Mulholland the workshop will encourage participants to create imagined pieces of jewellery, simple bowls or shaped tools. Find out more here.

The sculptures, a series of mirrored dwellings, invite viewers to consider human settlers’ influence on Morecambe Bay. Six mirrored figures reflect upon the idea of sites of human settlement, reminding the viewer of the generations working the land and the sea in centuries gone by. The ambiguity of the mirrored forms and utilisation of unconventional materials will enhance the visual experiences and allow the viewers to see the environment in a new and exciting way, literally reflecting the landscapes they see around them. The landscape will alter and distort, appearing and disappearing as the viewer passes, a vestige or trace of the past, a reminder of those who have walked these places before. Find out more here.
