Art Meets Oceans: Luke Jerram

A redundant fleet in the forest

I came across this article recently which features a slightly different art installation, ‘Withdrawn’, made up of redundant fishing vessels placed in the forest near Bristol in South-West England.

The artist, Luke Jerram, has created a way for the public to appreciate the current state of the oceans and fast-dwindling fish stocks by bringing a world which not many people know a lot about, the fishing industry, to them.

The hope is that people will start to think about the reason why these fishing boats are no longer needed, and reflect on what this indicates about ocean health.
