Belvoir "3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw" Sculpture Trail
Sculpture Symposium 2011
Laury Dizengremel and youth from Lincolnshire
"2012 - Olympic Tribute Sculpture"
Completed just in time for the unveiling inaugural 3Rs sculpture symposium in Spring 2011, this "2012" installation sculpture / collaborative artwork was the result of sculpture workshops conducted by Laury in 9 schools in Lincolnshire during the months of February and March 2011 (West Dysart and Spitalgate West Grantham academies, St Anne's Primary, Grantham Preparatory School, Great Ponton Primary, Denton Primary, Huntingtower Primary, Isaac Newton Primary and Belmont Primary schools).

The first of the artworks on the sculpture trail which runs northward from Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir's lock bridge towards Stenwith bridge, like all the other sculptures this installation is sited on land owned by the Duke of Rutland.
Stacker sticks were reclaimed by Laury from builders merchant yards around Lincolnshire, then painted during workshops by kids from the primary schools.
Laury's artist statement for the piece: "Wanting to ensure our little neck of the woods here in the East Midlands participates in the Cultural Olympiad traditionally created by each country hosting the Olympic Games, I designed this collaborative sculpture so that hundreds of children in 9 schools in Lincolnshire could learn more about public sculpture and over a hundred could take a hands-on part in creating an outdoor artwork. I hope Grantham and surrounding village school kids will come here with their parents and proudly point to one or several sticks with a sense of ownership."
Many thanks to all those who helped with last-minute tacking/glueing and with the installation: fellow sculptors Lorna Green, Ryan Curtis, Ryan Kerslake, Tash, Emily, Hannah Satchwell, Dale, and Joe Caneen.
The 3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw Sculpture Trail was an artist-led initiative by sculptor Laury Dizengremel, who garnered the support of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland at Belvoir Castle and received for the project a major donation from Christie's auction house (European office).
