Arctic Char by Brian & George Fell

Outside the Ambleside Salutation & Spa for Lakes Ignite 2018


Handmade in steel by Brian and George Fell, this sculpture of a shoal of Arctic Char showcases a rare and notable Lake District fish whose survival acts as a barometer of climate change. The fish will be three times their actual size, so approximately one metre each, and arranged in a dynamic formation, as though captured in mid-motion.

Lakes Ignite 2018 presents six specially commissioned contemporary artworks to celebrate the Lake District’s designation as a World Heritage site. From January to July 2018, six artists are bringing their creative vision to the Lakes with a unique collection of artworks that are free to visit and explore.

Each installation provides a different perspective on our World Heritage story using very different media including metal, wood, mirrors, inflatables, performance and virtual reality. So whether you’re 8 or 80, come and spark your imagination in 2018 and experience art in our celebrated Lake District landscape.
