This installation is part of the ongoing ’Two Towers Talk’ series, emerging from a residency at the South Lookout in Aldeburgh. This body of work treats the ambiguous concept and symbolic significance of the tower: as a menacing site for mass observation and oppression, or as a positively protective place of solitary retreat. These works merge images and representations of the former shipping information lookout tower, with those relating to the watchtower at a former concentration camp in Germany. They are reflections on artistic practice, family history, and inner conflict and reconciliation.
