WhatfettleAldeburgh Scallop

Sea View

The contraversal Scallop on Aldebugh beach is interesteing. I'm not sure what to make of it. Maggi Hambling sees it a tribute to Benjamin Britten.


Though this is where the controvesy starts - Britten was inspired by the emptyness of the beach. Sticking a 5 metre high lump of stainless in the middle does change the view somewhat!

Ultimately, like any work of art, i think it deserves to be judged solely on it's asthetics and it's on that level which i'm undecided. i just can't decide if i like the look of the thing!
