8 minute documentary - Lizzie Buckmaster Dove - Pool, the Alchemy of Blue
"There is something almost primordial about Lizzie Buckmaster Dove’s Pool, the Alchemy of Blue installation. It tugs at our collective consciousness, at indistinct or imagined memories of prehistoric ancestors gathering rocks and stones and arranging them in symbolic patterns at significant sites. The installation evokes a sense of deep connection that draws on powerful natural forces. There is something spiritual and ritualistic about both the process of gathering the random and irregular pieces of concrete, remnants of the Coledale sea pool, and reassembling them cairn like far from their place of origin."
