About the Artwork

Installed in 2017 as 'The Fifth Plinth' of the Ludlow Fringe Festival's Art Trail, where Matt was Artist in Residence, based at the Parish church. The piece was installed in the Churchyard. The theme was resilience and circularity of life. In the church setting it had resonance with the resurrection, and it is somewhat cross-shaped. A typical reaction from adults is that it represents Brexit.

Additional Information
