Laurence Payot has been commissioned to create a new public statue in Blackpool, as part of Blackpool’s Quality Corridor Programme. The design has developed from a community consultation phase led by the artist, engaging with various community groups and local residents in the town.

‘Call of the Sea’ will be a painted bronze statue, a realistic replica of a young girl from the Blackpool area, posing as if she was a street performer, covered in blue paint and shells.

With a raised hand and determined look, she will send an environmental and activist message.
