Flaming Fleeces Eclipsed

By  Irene Rogan 2023
This visual lament seeks to address the ways in wool—once a highly significant and nationally formative resource in the UK—has become so devalued it is no longer viable to bring the fleeces to market; instead, they have to be burned or used as mulch. "Flaming Fleeces Eclipsed" builds on an earlier series of work (Flaming Fleeces) in which raw wool was burned in a public space to highlight this apparent contradiction. In this new installation Fleeces pour out of the upstairs windows and tumble down the stairwell, apparently "about to overwhelm". These artworks have been developed to draw attention to our collective responsibility, especially in a time of climate crisis, to reduce waste and to maximise the use of organic, sustainable and biodegradable materials.
