1. DOVER - DNA
Grounds of Dover Castle
Two large sculptures of a double helix are displayed in the historic grounds of Dover Castle. The sculptures are made in bright gold with cadmium red connections to represent the colours of the Dover flag. The sculptures grow like trees from the ground and make real the identity of the town as it exists in both cultural history and landscape. The sculptures are installed on the grass mounds between Upper Road and Castle Hill Road.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Dover Art Network is an online exhibition of ideas from artists in Dover commissioned in response to the COVID-19 lockdown.
The Dover Art Network resource exists for visitors to explore the work of artists visualised in locations around Dover. It provides artists with an opportunity to explore and develop ideas for sculpture beyond physical limits, to push the boundaries of contextualising art in the public space, and to exhibit collectively across boundaries.
We encourage everyone to explore the work and ideas of local artists as they respond to our town.
