War Against Donkeys
Chalk from the Cliffs of Dover and Mixed Media
Dimensions 400 x 600cm
War Against Donkeys is a huge 4 metre wide drawing of a donkey, made with chalk extracted from Dover's famous white cliffs. The work is inspired by the old seaside history of the town and by Charles Dickens description of it in David Copperfield. With weather and time the chalk will eventually fade and erode, but the original drawing materials have been left on site as a signpost and an invitation to the public who can access the space around the clock.
Produced for an exhibition entitled Cargo, Levels 5 and 6 of a car park at Charlton Arts Centre, Dover, curated by Christine Gist.
