Cabot Circus > A Weight of Stone Carried From China For You

This intimate installation reflects the global nature of the procurement and processing of materials, and celebrates those involved in contributing to the creation of this part of Bristol's city centre, and highlight the connections between source and final resting place. 'A Weight of Stone Carried From China For You' is the result of a documented journey taken by Neville which tracks the movement of a single granite kerbstone from its source in a quarry in the Fujian Province of China and its transportation by truck, train and ferry, to its final installation in Bristol's Bond Street. The kerbstone becomes a 'touchstone' for those who notice it amongst a sea of similar stones. It is a poignant reminder that within the creation of this very British city, there is also a small part of China.
