The White Palm is a proposal by Wolfgang Weileder for a new large-scale public sculpture for the North Promenade in Cleethorpes. The artwork consists of a 22m tall white artificial palm tree and a black ground covering that references its shadow at noon on the summer solstice.
The shadow material underneath the White Palm will be partly made from recycled non-organic material collected from Cleethorpes’ beaches. At night The White Palm will be illuminated by spotlights set into the ground.
ENGIE Services Ltd on behalf of North East Lincolnshire Council is seeking a suitable qualified supplier to work closely with the artist and with reference to the Lead Design Team and the client (NELC/ENGIE) to finalise the design specification, and then carry out fabrication and installation.
The project has been submitted for planning consent based on the concept designs. (See Planning Application reference DM/0804/19/FUL on the North East Lincolnshire Planning Portal).
