David Mach: Odyssey

Internationally renowned sculptor David Mach turned DCL&G into an artist's studio as part of Visit Scotland’s Year of Coast and Waters 2020 when he invited the public in to watch and share the creative process as he built his latest large-scale installation out of shipping containers, old sea-worn wood, shipping buoys and six tonnes of newspapers.

Completed in October, the artist explained the thinking behind Odyssey and the significance of his chosen materials: “Sea containers carry the world’s stuff. We make, we produce, we trade. We use these boxes to hold our ideas and designs. It’s no wonder they appear like Greek temples, their long ribbed sides replicating pillars, their short gable ends holding the doors to the Aladdin’s Cave inside.”
