A new cubic installation is complete at Coombe Trenchard, this work is the second 'Fever' piece, the first titled 'You Give Me Fever' was installed in Amiens, France as part of the 2014 Art, Cities & Landscape exhibition. The new work titled 'Fever When You Hold Me Tight', consists of 20 interconnected 0.5m cubes constructed 5m up from the ground around the trunk and branches of an Ash tree. The host tree was carefully selected to fit with the strict geometry of the cubic grid, there are no direct fixings from the grid to the tree, the grid is woven in an embrace around the branches.
The installation is part of SCULPTURAL 2015 at Coombe Trenchard in West Devon. Open from May 2nd until the 20th June this years exhibition has been co-curated by acclaimed sculptor Julian Wild, who has been working closely with William Bennington Gallery to gather together an exiting and diverse line up of contemporary sculptors.
