[Fragments]



2017, St Albans Clock Tower

Photography by Inna Allen

During a residency with St Albans Museums and UH Arts, Spendlove spent time researching mediaeval fragments of stained glass in the Museum's archive. She created a series of perspex leaning sculptures for installation at the St Albans Clock Tower. The laser-engraved objects were an echo of the small broken pieces of glass. Enlarging these fragments created a sense of permanence and significance for objects which may otherwise have been overlooked or destroyed.
