An installation made from 1,000 pieces of sheep fleece processed by artist Laurence Dubé-Rushby and volunteers through Laurence’s ongoing residency at River Bourne Community Farm. Laurence says: “The work aims at finding a new way to represent our local landscape, shaped by two basic needs, food and safety.” The madder plants used to dye the fleece once coloured army soldiers’ coats red, while the use of lambs’ wool symbolises the sacrifice of lives. The fleeces will be suspended in bundles from beams to create a stunning red wave.
