Heeley City Farm
concrete on wire frame
Arranged in the 'natural' surroundings
of Heeley City Farm. (A-Z p99 6F)
A range of animals including a
goat, a chicken standing on a duck and a speckled turkey, made out of concrete.
Made with active help from schoolchildren
from two local primary schools. The commission was created through the Graves
Art Gallery's Education Officer and took place while a solo exhibition of
Mayne's work was on show in the Gallery.
The farm suffered a bad fire in
1996 and the goat and turkey were destroyed. The duck and hen remain although
curiously the latter no longer sits on the duck's back!
