Spear

 

For two days and two nights (October 28 – 30, 2016) Lake Semerwater in the Yorkshire Dales played host to a new public artwork designed by sculptor David Murphy in association with the Dales Countryside Museum. 

Spear saw a floating pavilion installed temporarily on the Lake’s waters, connected to the shore by a long floating walkway. Recalling the outline form of the Museum’s prized bronze age spearhead, Murphy’s intervention  allowed visitors to fully explore the artwork and to view the landscape from a unique position on the Lake itself.

between October 2015 and october 2016, the artist David Murphy worked closely with The Dales Countryside Museum, with commissioning partners Arts & Heritage, and with Casswell Bank Architects to devise a unique project that championed elements of the Museum collection while providing an extraordinary sensory experience for visitors. 

Murphy, who has strong family ties to the area, was inspired by the remote location and astonishing beauty of Semerwater as well as by the sheer number of artefacts that have been discovered on its shores over the last hundred years.
