Keith Wilson 2010
Boat Race, by Keith Wilson, is a 9m long winding structure that sits in the Kennels car park of Grizedale visitor centre. Nature and visitors have added their own marks to the original in the form of faint graffiti and mould.
“This piece has numerous significant representations – it follows the course of the River Thames used within the Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race, as well as taking the psychological calming of the narrow tracks used in abbatoirs”
I took a few photos of this, partly to see whether the installation had a good side, but came to the conclusion that all sides were equal.
