About the Artwork

A Functional Remediation Eco-artwork Commission Sculpture.200-foot long, meandering through a wooded park. Invasive vegetation was removed (over two tons), and replaced with the important indigenous shrub,salal.

The wattles were hand-sewn of jute and stuffed with straw. Poetry (in English) and the word for “salal” (in eight languages of Pacific Northwest Coastal indigenous tribes) were also hand-stitched into the wattles.

Eventually the salal will grow back and the wattles will decay, becoming mulch and nesting material for the resident flora and fauna.

Artist Comment

Addresses the restoration of both the woodland ecology, (the indigenous shrub salal) and the social ecology (use of the indigenous cultural languages to name the important shrub salal). The poem reads: "Salal grows in the darker places, Like love, and, like love, Takes hold in the shadows" Languages of these cultures are included: Tsimshiam, Haida (Skidegate and Masset dialects), Haisla, Makah, Quileute.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
