Contest #727 – Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park, The Lime, Grenada

Designed by British sculptor Jason deCaries Taylor, this collection of sculptures sits installed into the ocean floor roughly 12 meters below the surface.

The centerpiece of the collection is “Vicissitudes”

The artist described the work thus: “Vicissitudes depicts a circle of figures, all linked through holding hands. These are life-size casts taken from a group of children of diverse ethnic backgrounds. Circular in structure … the work both withstands strong currents and replicates one of the primary geometric shapes, evoking ideas of unity and continuum. … The sculpture proposes growth, chance, and natural transformation. It shows how time and environment impact on and shape the physical body. Children by nature are adaptive to their surroundings. Their use within the work highlights the importance of creating a sustainable and well-managed environment, a space for future generations.” –Jason deCaires Taylor
