The Waste HOUSE 2014, a work of art

18 March 2014

Salt Field - by Phillip Hall-Patch 


In the lead up to the Brighton Festival the Waste House will be handed over to HOUSE 2014 artist and architect, Phillip Hall-Patch, to create an installation titled Salt Field.

Hall-Patch, who investigates the tensions between transience and stability through ephemeral and time-based works, is producing an installation that will look at the global historic and economic role of salt. The work will comprise of a ‘field’ of salt blocks drip-fed by water that will slowly dissolves, with the displaced mineral reforming as new crystalline growths.

Hall-Patch’s work is in response to HOUSE 2014’s lead artist, Yinka Shonibare MBE, themes of immigration, migration and refuge, in his work The British Library, that will be presented in the dramatic Edwardian surroundings of the former Reference Library in Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.

The other artists selected to produce work for HOUSE 2014, are Leah Gordon, Tobias Revell and Ester Svensson & Rosanna Martin.

You can see Phillip Hall-Patch’s Salt Field at the Brighton Waste House during the Brighton Festival, 3–25 May.

HOUSE 2014 is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
