REGENERATION BY THE LATE ANNA CHEYNE

This bronze and fibreglass sculpture, by Anna Cheyne [1926 - 2002], representing the regeneration of the city of Belfast is called “Regeneration”.

Anna Cheyne’s family might not be too pleased by the fact that her work in Blackstaff Square is not much mentioned in tourist guides or by the fact that it is usually surrounded by litter and empty beer bottles.

I first photographed this installation in May 2014 and at the time it was surrounded by litter a year later the litter problem was much less of a problem. This year the area was litter free but the installation is difficult to see, unless you know that it exists, as it is surrounded by beer kegs and plastic containers from a local pub.

SORRY FOR THE DELAY
