Echo 2009
stainless steel, bronze, cast glass. 3 meters high
Sited in Caldecott Park, Rugby.
Commissioned by Rugby Borough Council as part of a £1million refurbishment of the Park.
The brief for the commission was to replace a Victorian Sculpture of a scantily clad girl entitled Echo which had disappeared from the park in the middle of the 20th Century.
This sculpture, a slim androgenous figure of a child attempting to blow notes from a tuba was Hilary's attempt to subvert the sadly tragic myth of Echo, and make a positive and joyful image.
