First There is a MountainMarch — October 2019
Only available in English for now
ATLAS Arts is one of twenty-five coastal arts organisations around the UK to feature First There is a Mountain by Katie Paterson. It involves the creation of a set of ‘buckets and spades’ in the form of world mountains, from which the public will build mountains of sand across the UK coastline and play out the world’s natural geography against a series of tidal times. Each pail is a scale model of five of earth’s mountains: Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Shasta (N. America), Mount Fuji (Asia), Stromboli (Europe), and Uluru (Oceania), nested together in a set.
