TSTM: Bristol (Transatlantic Slave Trade Memorial), 2012 -
Location: Bristol, UK
Project Status: Ongoing
The Transatlantic Slave Trade Memorial: Bristol, located on the River Severn, aims to provide a reference point of remembrance and education to Africans enslaved under the trade and their descendants. Conceived as four collective elements, the memorial combines a series of subtle interventions on the banks of the River Severn intended to engage the visitor through a route of existing paths within the local landscape.
Each intervention seeks to represent a contemplative and interactive connection reflecting the gravity and context of the African slave trade, the Africans enslaved and the journey to the unknown.
