Huangpu Hold

Standing new to the old Shanghai shipyard site is the sculpture Huangpu Hold. 21 steel pipes have located at either end. A total of 42 ships parts taken from a discarded wreck that sat in the shipyard site. All the ellipse or circular sections were cut from marked places on the ship and attached to the end of each pipe.

The work is about taking an important industrial object from the rivers past that was discarded and thrown away to become an eyesore. This important object has been renewed, transformed and given a life once more as a reminder of the rivers powerful history.
