About this project

‘Avenue’ is a temporary, site-specific, woven installation developed for the Festival of Thrift at Kirkleatham Museum.

Inspired by the recent history of arson within the stable blocks of Kirkleatham Museum, the artwork was hand-woven using decommissioned fire-hoses and hand-cut polythene sheeting and supported by a steel framework.

Made with support Arts Council England, Navigator North, East Street Arts, Festival of Thrift and Cleveland Fire Brigade.
