Heart of Reeds here in Chris’s hometown of Lewes, was designed to increase the biodiversity of a small nature reserve on the edge of town in a wetland that used to be a railway marshalling yard. The design is taken from the the movement of blood in the heart known as the Cardiac Twist. By using islands and water, the borderlines between the two are increased therefore increasing habitat for small creatures. Water levels can also be adjusted via various sluice gates. The work has proved popular to both people and wildlife and continues to grow and thrive and change throughout the seasons.
Chris Drury Biography
His work seeks to make connections between different phenomena in the world, specifically between:
Nature and Culture
Inner and Outer
Microcosm and Macrocosm
All of his works, over the past 25 years have been concerned with these connections. This is what unites the whole body of work. He does not have a particular style, nor does he prefer one material or process over another, rather He will seek the most appropriate means and material to find, and make explicit, those connections.
To this end Chris Drury collaborates with scientists and technicians from a broad spectrum of disciplines and technology. This may mean that one exhibition or work outside may look very different to another. Each work starts from zero and breaks new ground. Its starting point is the place and/or the situation. His work therefore is a continuing dialogue with the world, exploring our place in the universe.
