Rhine Mosel Whirlpool was created for the Koblenz garden Festival 2011, and commissioned through the Heike Strellow Gallery, Frankfurt. It sits up on the cliff by the fortress above where the Mosel flows into the Rhine. The Cliff itself is formed from the same stone which we obtained from a local tile and slate works. The presence of slate in the earth gives the local and famous wines a distinctive flavour, the meeting of two rivers gives birth to whirlpools in the water.
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.
