Lot Essay

For the past two decades the British artist Stuart Haygarth has been creating beautiful installations, often in the form of chandeliers, from marine detritus collected across Britain’s beaches.
'I used to go down to Dungeness, on the Kent coast, with my dog, and I started noticing interesting objects washed up on the beach. I began collecting them, building up an archive in my studio, categorising them by colour, utility or material.
In 2005, the first Tide chandelier evolved from arranging some of these pieces of translucent plastic so that light would travel through them. The work’s spherical shape is a reference to the Moon, which affects the tides washing up this debris onto the coastline. I’m also interested in the diversity of the objects represented in each work, thinking about how they came to be on a beach — whether it’s a child’s spectacles or a shoe, for instance. They each have an interesting narrative, and the finished work is an archive of these stories.' (Interview with Christie's, April 2023).
