Emma Biggs: Wharf Walk
2003 & 2013 | stone and glass mosaic | Lower levels, Jubilee Place (interior) | Art Map reference: D13
Emma Biggs’ Wharf Walk takes us through the Jubilee Place shopping mall, following a trail of floor mosaics depicting some of the trades that passed through the original dockyards that flourished here in earlier times.
Each image is framed by a piece of evocative text, derived from Biggs’ careful research for the commission in 2003. In 2013, when the mall was extended to a lower floor, Biggs was invited to create four new mosaics on the same theme. Wharf Walk now comprises 17 floor mosaics in all.
