So, eventually the sculpture left London in pouring rain and it arrived at Broomhill in pouring rain. However, you know they say that rain on a weeding day means good luck? I’m pretty sure that also applies to installation days. Just as we started digging the hole for the foundation the sun came out and stayed with us for the rest of the day. At this point I have to give a massive thank you to Paul, who was incredibly helpful on the day and made this one of the smoothest installation experiences I ever had.
And finally (finally, finally…) came the moment I had been waiting for for the longest time….
… peeling of the protective foil! No words can describe how satisfying this felt and how happy I am now to finally see this piece now out there as part of the world – engaging with it’s surrounding and the people visiting Broomhill Sculpture Park.
A massive thank you to Rinus and everyone else involved, who have been so supportive and lovely throughout the process. It’s been an incredible journey and I am so grateful for everything a learned and for the wonderful people I met along the way.
