Franny Swann - Eccho 1

A National Trust Project
Knole House, Kent 2013

The Echo project required the artist to respond to an object now held in a local museum, and place the responses back into the grand house as an echo of its former self.

The resultant work revolved around a small 18th century pear- shaped lead sweetmeat mould, and investigated the fact that there is no safe threshold for lead in the human body.
