The site-responsive sculptural pieces that make up Pythian Games explore origins, metamorphosis and decay. The work considers monuments, tools and dwellings to create forms, which are both developing and eroding. The pieces grow into fluid and sinuous entities through intricate combinations of materials. On entering the space one is transported into a landscape of converging timelines, of half recognised imagery, of things part memory and part subconscious. Through this site the work explores ideas permanence and the reverberations that occur through time and place.
