CONTEMPORARY artist Sam Photic has teamed up with Zara and Hugh Rogers in a special event that brings an exciting modern sculpture to a hillside near Crediton.

The artist spent six months converting a rusted disintegrating slurry tanker into an illuminated beacon with a carnival spirit, which is visible for miles around.

The artist said: “This beacon piece signals outwards utilising the greatest breadth of light to invite questions of energy production and consumption, alongside the impact of agricultural methods.”

The concept was born amidst the landscape nurtured by Hugh and Zara and is the perfect environment for its first public viewing.

The sculpture just North of East Coombe Farm was installed on Monday, October 18 and is visible in the evenings.

Walkers at Raddon should look to the North West, and those in Stockleigh Pomeroy to the North East.
