News > Dalziel+Scullion appointed to Ebbsfleet Green Landmark commission

Dalziel + Scullion have begun their site specific research into Ebbsfleet Green and the surrounding areas.  Internationally recognised as artists whose work is driven by a passion for ecology and sustainability and have received won the Art in Public Places award for 'Nomadic Boulders' illustrated above.   The Nomadic Boulders of John O'Groats are a group of three sculptures inspired by the force of the Pentland Firth. The sculpture, which is part of the wider regeneration of John O’Groats, incorporates boulders that were swept up on to a nearby beach after a storm two years ago which are suspended on three arcs of bronze creating a dramatic composition reminiscent of the surrounding landscape.

To quote the artists "our work explores mankind’s relationship with nature and how we interact with the ecology of the earth. We believe that new ideas and ways of living will be born out of revolutionary attitudes towards nature, and that - like the Copernican revolution - when the earth was revealed not to be at the centre of our universe, we need to awaken to the fact that the earth does not revolve around mankind.We have extended the scope of our practice from gallery works and site-specific artworks to look at the ecology of place and how artworks and art concepts can help regenerate and revitalise areas aiding the development of sustainable local communities, as well as nurturing relationships with the land and its wider ecology.We have extended the scope of our practice from gallery works and site-specific artworks to look at the ecology of place and how artworks and art concepts can help regenerate and revitalise areas aiding the development of sustainable local communities, as well as nurturing relationships with the land and its wider ecology."
