Project outline:CUT/STACK/BURN is a performative re-enactment of a redundant rural activity - furze cutting for domestic fuel (or gorse outside of cornwall). The project uses art installation as a platform to develop a visual conversation about the implications and absence of sustainable approaches in the management of land and its resources. Our current use of energy in an age of climate change becomes a focal point and pivotal issue in this visual debate.

From the beginning Neil Armstrong, the director of Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, had been very supportive of the project and helped me in whatever way he could. But importantly I was left alone to develop the project. Although Tremenheere is developing a name for itself as a venue for environmental art it is not, as yet, open to the public on a regular basis. The fact that Neil opened the garden especially to coincide with the burn event was very much appreciated.
