The organisers of this year’s Big Chill festival have commissioned installations and photography to appear at this year’s event.
Installation specialists Henry Krokatsis and Claire Morgan and photographer Rankin are among those working on the Herefordshire festival, to be held 6-9 August.
Krokatsis will create a site-specific installation responding to the landscape of the festival and its location. Using reclaimed flooring, broken furniture and wooden offcuts, he is building a 10m-high helter-skelter lighthouse, which will act as a centrepiece for the festival.
Morgan will create a site-specific shelter installation from the canopy of three oak trees, by suspending natural materials from umbrellas.
Photographer Rankin will shoot festival-goers’ portraits as part of his Rankin Live exhibition, in which he aims to take the portraits of 1000 Britons during the summer.
Graphic design consultancy Bleach created a new identity and branding for the festival earlier this year, featuring the work by 32 illustrators (DW 21 January).
