Rebecca Chesney


Rebecca Chesney is a Preston based artist whose work explores the politics, ownership and value of land and the impact of human activity on the natural environment.

Conditions at Present is an installation of 25 windsocks made from reclaimed fabric from tents salvaged from music festivals. Tents provide shelter in times of crisis or displacement. They can perform a very different role at music festivals where cheap tents are often discarded by their temporary inhabitants.

Chesney asks us to consider the environmental impacts that produced tents so cheaply.

Conditions at Present is a co-commission with the British Textile Biennial, in collaboration with FWRD (Festival Waste Reclamation and Distribution)
