Craig Coulthard – Forest Pitch

The UK Art Council’s Artists Taking The Lead project finds 12 artists creating public art to celebrate the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Scottish artist Craig Coulthard is in the process of creating Forest Pitch: a full-sized football pitch hidden inside a forest, created by felling an area of commercial trees and using that wood to create goalposts and shelters. After two matches, the pitch will be left to grow and be reclaimed by the forest.
