Inspired by bell ringing, Campanology is a collaboration between five artists from a multitude of disciplines. It incorporates a wide range of practices, from fine art printmaking, traditional casting and contemporary design. This installation will interact with the local surroundings, the church of St Mary Redcliffe and influenced by cuckoo clocks, it will come to life when the church bells chime.
This work is inspired by childhood memories of building marble runs. Here the marbles act as the bell ringers, slowly pushing their way to the top of the tower before hurtling down the track, ringing bells on their automated and repetitive journey.
Exhibited at the Control Room, Bristol 4 – 11 August 2015 as part of a group exhibition alongside Charlotte Biszewski, Aoife Barrett, Naomi Greeves and Lorna Sylvester.
