‘a space’ arts is seeking an artist, experienced in working with wood, to complete fabrication for a public art project on a small housing development in Dorset.
The successful artist will need to create a set of 6 birdboxes modelled on the houses of the village of Stourpaine in Dorset, these will then be situated on poles along the front of the development.
The chosen artist should be able to demonstate previous examples of working with wood. It would be beneficial if this was in the context of work created for the public realm.
In your proposal please include a link to your online portfolio. As well as a breakdown of costs including labour, materials, and delivery to the site in Dorset. A summary of how you plan to complete the project, details of materials and finishes and an idea of the overall aesthetic that you hope to acheive. And a method for fixing the birdbox to the top of a 2-3 metre pole.
We’re particularly keen to see how this model village of birdboxes could be interpreted in a contemporary way.
Closes: 20 August 2017
