Katie Paterson: First There is a Mountain
11:00 on 16 June 2019
Join us on Portobello Beach as part of Paterson’s UK-wide project, First There is a Mountain.
Paterson has created a set of buckets in the form of world mountains, which we will use to build sand mountain ranges across Portobello Beach. The work will play out the world’s natural geography and geology against the sea’s tidal times, as each mountain is formed and eroded within the cycle of a day. Each pail is a scale model of one of five mountains: Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Shasta (N. America), Mount Fuji (Asia), Stromboli (Europe), and Uluru (Oceania), nested together in a set.
Choreographed over the period of daylight saving time during British Summer Time, from 31 Mar–27 Oct 2019, the artwork will tour to twenty-five high profile coastal art organisations around the UK. First There is a Mountain connects world mountains to the smallest grains of sand. The artwork invites people to slow down and consider the interconnectedness of the world, from shifting coastlines across millennia, to our own eroding coastline.
