Lucy Wayman: Clovehitch
25 July 2019 until 31 May 2020
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 21 Hawthornvale, Edinburgh, EH6 4JT
25 July – 31 May 2020
Mon – Sun, 24 hours (on public cycle path)
Friday 26 July 2019, 7-9pm
ESW is delighted to be part of the 2019 Edinburgh Art Festival, and present work by Caroline Achaintre, Adam Benmakhlouf and Lucy Wayman.
Lucy Wayman has been commissioned to create a new public sculpture for the cycle path close to Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Wayman’s practice makes use of craft techniques, such as weaving, knotting and macramé, but at scale and with a dynamism that surprises. The work, created from marine rope, follows Wayman’s interest in the industrial and historic uses of rope, connecting ideas of system, control and release. Her approach to making mirrors the repetitive, industrial processes that originally produced the materials, but produces objects that are recognisable from the domestic realm. Her work revolves around material constraints, contrasts, and forms. The project will be accompanied by a number of events.
This is her first major outdoor commission and is supported by ESW’s partner Sustrans, through their ArtRoots programme.
Lucy Wayman was selected for this commission from an open call to all of ESW’s members. Wayman has had a Graduate Studio at ESW since 2017 and has also been part of ESW Technical Academy since 2018, a year long training scheme for artists who want to gain experience as workshop technicians.
