'The Magnetic Pull of the Sea'

The Fal River Festival is also honoured to host a new sculptural installation by Nicola Donovan,'The Magnetic Pull of the Sea'. This artist subverts the accepted and ‘normal', she demands a reactionthat has very little to do with shock tactics, but much to do with surprise tactics!

To elicit reflection and stir the imagination, Donovan's work creates
dense marking in the environment through the use of multiple constructed objects that communicate via a visual and tactile language common to each one of us. Donovan lectures in textiles in Falmouth, Bristol and internationally, is a freelance journalist, & exhibits her work both in the UK and abroad, with work held by the V&A in the Contemporary Artists Archive.
