Cookham Erratics

Andy Holden, 'Cookham Erratics', 2011.
Holden engages with the context of the Benaki Museum's ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, through a personal archaeology, investigating the relationship between personal memory, monuments and the authoritative nature of narrative. The work consists of six knitted sculptures, mounted on plinths and placed among the Greek and Roman antiquities exhibited on the ground floor of the museum. These sculptures, constructed of steel, foam and mixed kitted yarns, are enlarged replicas of small stones and pebbles collected by the artist from the churchyard at Cookham, England, the setting for a celebrated painting by the British artist, Stanley Spencer.
