Stirling Health and Care Village - sculpture commission


Stirling Health and Care Village comprises three healthcare buildings: the long established Stirling Community Hospital and the new Bellfield and GP and Minor Injuries Centres which will open in October 2018.  NHS Forth Valley wants to commission a visual artist or maker to create ‘circlets’ of small inter-related sculptures, some of which will be permanent and some temporary, for five courtyards in the new Bellfield Centre.  Also, to create a series of semi-permanent sculptures (to last for 5-7 years) for public sites on the Health and Care Village’s perimeter.

 There are five courtyards in which people will be able to enjoy the fresh air and relax on their own or with friends and visitors. We want to bring humour and interactivity to the courtyards with ‘circlets’  of small artworks placed around each courtyard , some of which will be permanent and others temporary.  The temporary pieces will be replaced every few years by new works which can involve people in their genesis, design and production.

Three semi-permanent pieces are required for new public spaces adjacent to the Village’s three buildings:  Stirling Community Hospital, the GP and Minor Injuries Unit and the Bellfield Centre.  They will be visible and accessible from the street and of a larger scale than the courtyard pieces.  These works can relate to each other or be completely separate from each other depending on the artist’s response to the sites and will be replaced after 5-7 years.
