This week we have been very busy installing the beautiful monumental ceramic sculptures by Julian Stair in Manchester Cathedral. The 18 ton lorry arrived from London on Monday morning and our team of installers were waiting with scaffolding and trolleys a ready. It was a joy to work with Sam and Mark from Brute Force and Ignorance, a specialist arts installation team who have worked with artists such as David Nash, Andy Goldsworthy and have overseen many installs at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Having installed Quietus in 2 previous spaces they new exactly what was needed to make things go smoothly. Julian and his studio assistant Matthew joined us on the 3 day install to unpack, condition check and install these half ton sculptures into their chosen spaces for the exhibition.
