HOVE PLINTH SCULPTURE - CONSTELLATION
Wednesday 21 June 2017

Great Art for everyone - let's put the first sculpture on Hove Plinth and launch a brilliant seafront site for art!

Hove Civic Society are launching Hove Plinth, a beautiful new sculpture plinth on the King's Esplanade in Hove.  By exhibiting brilliant modern-day sculpture we aim to inspire, delight and surprise all those who visit Brighton & Hove’s wonderful seafront. Funding for building the Plinth itself is secure. We now need your help to raise funds for the inaugural sculpture.

£40,000 Target reached - many congratulations - looking forward to hearing about the first phase

Constellation - the first sculpture for the Hove Plinth

Constellation by Jonathan Wright has been selected as the first artwork to be displayed on the Hove Plinth. It is a perfect fit for the location, an imaginative celebration of our community which puts Hove in its own solar system. Wright’s design is part mechanical model of the solar system, part film camera and part ship’s compass. The most popular landscapes and iconic images associated with Hove will orbit the system rather than planets. Wright will involve local residents and groups in identifying and selecting the final objects, which will represent historic, present day and future features of Hove. The sculpture will move slightly and cast beautiful shadows on the promenade.

The artist will use innovative 3D printing technology as part of the production.  Uniquely, the display will be equipped with internet access and use mobile/digital technology to make viewing the sculptures a fun and interactive experience.

The image shows a small model of Constellation with temporary illustrative icons.

You can help us put the first sculpture on the Hove Plinth

With your help we can soon commission the first sculpture for the Hove Plinth and start the process of creating a major landmark for Hove and a great addition to our community. If we reach our funding target we can cover the cost of producing  the full-size sculpture and supporting the community involvement. 

 “Everyone who loves our seafront should help Hove Plinth become a reality. It will be the platform for some stunning creativity in the years to come and always brilliantly remind people – visitor and resident – that our city has unique and lasting style.  Dick Knight, Lifetime President of Brighton and Hove Albion and Honorary Freeman of Brighton and Hove

The sculptor: Jonathan Wright

Jonathan Wright (BA Hons Fine Art, MA Sculpture RCA) makes sculpture, installations and drawings.

Based in Folkestone he has staged solo and mixed shows in London, across the UK and abroad and commissions for Folkestone Triennial. He is currently working on an installation for Folkestone Triennial 2017.

“The idea for Constellation is to create a work that is part made by the local inhabitants and part made by the location itself. The role of the artist in this project is to provide a basic structure to focus the work as a whole and to guide it to fruition. The work is conceived by the public and engineered by the artist." Jonathan Wright

The project team

Hove Civic Society, a registered charity,  is the lead organisation behind the Hove Plinth. We are a registered  charity  founded in 1960 with the object of stimulating community interest in the beauty, history and character of Hove and its surroundings. We are passionate about improving the local environment and feel strongly that public art has the power to enrich our lives and inspire us to experience our surroundings in new ways.

Our Public Sculpture Project Team all give their time for free and includes professionals with experience in public sculpture, sculpting practice, curating, fundraising, communication and business management. Expert advice on engineering and design is provided by HOP Civil and Structural Engineers and Millimetre Ltd.
