A STUNNING freely accessible public artwork will be installed on Birkrigg Common, Ulverston, this weekend and will remain there for the coming week.

‘Settlement’ by artist, Rob Mulholland consists of a series of life-size human, mirrored cut-outs and reflective, pitched structures make a striking statement in the Cumbrian landscape.

British sculptor and environmental artist Rob Mulholland develops a series of mirrored dwellings to be temporarily installed on both Birkrigg Common and on The Barrows, Heysham Coast. Inspired by early Anglo-Saxon designs, the dwellings aim to encourage viewers to consider the influence of people of the past on Morecambe Bay.

Six mirrored human-shaped figures complete the idea of the structures and sites as places as human settlement, reminding the viewer of the people working the land and the sea in centuries gone by.
