“Fragment Showcase”

by timpughartist

“Fragment Showcase” is a temporary site specific installation created at an old disused Iron Ore mine in West Cumbria,England. I came across an old display case on its side and hung found discarded items related to the mining such as an old welding mask and rusted slivers of metal.I was attracted to the poignancy of the items and the white interior background highlights the corroded and disintegrated nature of these reminders of the sites former industrial use related to the Iron Ore industry.
