We are part of the project management team for the tour of two sculptures from the poppy installation at the Tower of London, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red. We work closely with the artist Paul Cummins, and designer Tom Piper, to install Wave and Weeping Window at various venues across the UK. The first venue was Yorkshire Sculpture Park, where we completed installing Wave last week.
The location chosen by the artist was in a weir, cresting over the cascade bridge at YSP. It was a daunting task to handle the sculptures for the first time, and even more so as it was sited in water! The difficulty of the location was matched by the end result, with the Wave looking stunning.
