Clementine Keith-Roach: Belle Dam


Belle Dam, 2018
Ceramic, plaster, wood, paint, milk substitute

Clementine Keith-Roach harnesses the tradition of the ornamental water feature as an invitation to relax and reflect. Milk substitute trickles from the breasts of Belle Dam, while hands and feet reach out to the environs at all angles. Clementine says: ‘Just as the mother's breast lactates at the infant's cry, Belle Dam spurts arcs of milk substitute in response to the groan of the city.’
