UP Projects Art Installation

Comprising four large-scale artworks, Jessie Brennan’s new commission takes visitors on a journey through the historic, social, political and economic factors that have impacted the area and shaped its identity.

Jessie Brennan’s artwork interprets,

  • Histories — drawing on lesser known heritage to create the conditions to imagine alternative futures.
  • People — identifying previously lesser celebrated local champions through engaging local communities.
  • Ecology — communicating the unique ecological aspects of the site – its connection to water, the docks, ecological aspects.
