Copperopolis – Jackie Chettur at Swansea Museum

Now on display in the Museum garden as part of the Copperopolis exhibition.

Using a diary by Benjamin Davies, an industrial worker sent off to Chile on one of Swansea’s copper barques, Jackie Chettur has brought to life his epic voyage and delved into the history of the Swansea Cape Horners who brought copper ore back from Chile in the late 1800’s.

The new artwork consists of a series of staged images created by the artist using historical artefacts, models and paintings that depict the long journeys and extraordinary sights that the sailors experienced as they set sail from Swansea Bay, past Mumbles Head and out beyond the horizon.

Created using 3D image technology, the images are displayed within 6 stereo viewers.
