Teaming up with Trudi

Trudi Lloyd Williams said: “Spiny Seahorses and Ripping Yarns will unravel further secrets from the Solent: those hidden in the shallow depths of the seagrass meadows and from our seafaring past. Plastic marine pollution has been the focus of my work for many years and I am looking forward to collaborating with the Wildlife Trust, Portsmouth City Council and the wider community to create a memorable sculpture for participants and visitors. I hope they will both enjoy it and be provoked onto a journey about their own consumption and disposal of plastic.”

Tim Ferrero, Secrets of the Solent Project Manager, said: “We are big fans of Trudi’s work, and admire her longstanding commitment to tackling environmental issues. We hope that local people who share our concerns about marine plastics will help us to make this sculpture as impressive and meaningful as possible.”

Christine Taylor, Natural History Curator at Portsmouth Museums, said: “We are really delighted to host the marine litter sculpture. The sea is on the doorstep of the museum and we hope visitors will make the very visual connection between the sculpture in front of them and where the plastics and other marine litter materials to create it have come from.”
