“Working with the given form of a tree is a process of discovery, of limitation and an attempt to transcend these limitations. During the carving of the elongated figures I realised that they represented present day lives in the west, rootless, fast moving and fluid.
An installation of site-specific sculptures and reverberating sounds…
Journey presented the work by two artists ‘in dialogue’, with the resulting installations creating a surreal landscape of tin pipes and animated trees. Artists Walter Bailey and Pak Keung Wan were commissioned by Fabrica to respond to the theme of ‘journey’ and to the exhibition space. Bailey explored the theme through his rough hewn, intricately carved wood sculptures, while Pak Keung Wan invited the visitors to share the sounds of his journey as he walked from Northampton to Brighton.

It’s like a flowing stream of lost souls …
I listened to the tube, and wrote a poem and made a boat and a wish… it made my day.
