Snailspace, Brighton & Hove 2018

Snailspace Brighton & Hove was the first in a series of Snailspace public art events coming to cities near you. It was the much-anticipated follow up to the hugely successful Snowdogs by the Sea. The sculpture provided a wonderful canvas, crucial for an artistic city like Brighton, and the motto #BeMoreSnail was truly embraced.

Fifty giant snails took their place in both iconic locations around the city and a few unexpected spots in autumn 2018. They were on the Snailway for eight weeks until they reunited for a spectacular farewell. Ahead of Christmas 2018, they were auctioned to raise money for Martlets before taking up residence in their forever homes.
