“We brought our family up in Eastbourne, the iconic Claremont Hotel stood as a landmark on the seafront for many years. A fire in 2019 stripped the structure back to its façade. I chose to create my narrative around the decision makers whose responsibility was to maintain safety. Unfortunately the shell was not stable enough, requiring it to be demolished. The solider statue nearby survived the fire and stood tall. The workforce, hard hats of local tradesmen were there, striving to keep the public safe.”
