For Those in Peril on the Sea (2011) is an installation by artist Hew Locke, first shown in 2013 during PAMM’s inaugural programming. Consisting of dozens of scaled-down replicas of ships suspended from the ceiling, the installation creates the impression of a massive exodus taking place throughout the architectural space above the viewer. It features a broad range of vessel types, from cigarette boats, catamarans, and cruise liners to ragged fishing skiffs and timeworn cargo ships.
Locke was born in Edinburgh, UK, 1959; he is currently based in London. His work is represented in many collections including those of the The Government Art Collection, The Pérez Art Museum Miami, The Tate Gallery, The Arts Council of England, The National Trust, The Brooklyn Museum , New York, The Arnold Lehman collection, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, The RSID Museum, Rhode Island, The New Art Gallery Walsall, The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Imperial War Museum, The British Museum and The Henry Moore Institute, Leeds.
