TVBC Invites Artist Applications To Revive The Riverside Troll

  • Written by Lucy

Local Andover News | TVBC Invites Artists Applications To Revive The Riverside Troll | Andover & VillagesTest Valley Borough Council are inviting applications for a small commission to revive the ugly rotten troll on the bridge over the River Anton.

First commissioned in 1998, the artwork is attached to the pedestrian troll bridge crossing the River Anton alongside Riverside Walk in Andover. The inner edge of the bridge carries the carved quotation from the famous Three Billy Goats Gruff tale - 'Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge'.

The artist brief states - 'Applications are invited from artists who are experienced in creating small scale artworks for the public realm, ideally working with carved oak or similar appropriate material, to recreate a nasty, ugly, troll for our troll bridge.'

The chosen artist will run two creative workshops, one with a local school and one as a drop in activity at one of the Four Fun Fridays in August, which take place in Andover High Street as part of the summer events programme.

The brief states 'The workshops should contribute to the final design and creation of the troll, supporting our Public Art Strategy by enabling local residents to be a part of the process and contribute to their environment.'

Applicants are asked to supply a quote for the artwork which outlines all costs including time for workshops, planning and design, materials, fabrication and installation.
