Lent Art Installation: corrodere

 


From Ash Wednesday through to Good Friday, South London artist Liz Harrison is taking the viewer into a fragile but too well known world - the shanty town, the refugee encampment.

Using corrugated metal as the basis of this installation we encounter the form of the most commonly used building material.

Made from, and exploiting the fragility of foil, the material symbolizes the frailty of the human condition, inhabiting and experiencing these crumbling and crumpled structures. Made specifically for the cathedral and responding to its space, the dismantled pieces make us ask questions about 'home' or 'shelter' in relation to hardship and su ering endured in communities across the world.
