Wiela, Wells Cathedral 2023

By  barbara beyer 2023
This group of four sculptures is part of the site-specific installations at Wells Art Contemporary WAC2023 at Wells Cathedral. Wiela relates to the four springs to which Wells cathedral owes it origin. The group presents three dichotomies: Boats built as houses; hulls whose forms suggest water while the cracked adobe they are made from seems as if it had seen drought. Paradoxically, the slates, which also bring some promise of water, feel as though they might imprison and overwhelm, or provide protection and sanctuary. Photo Julia Lametta
