Artist to tow iceberg from Arctic to Belfast

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Artist to tow iceberg from Arctic to Belfast: "'A huge big mountain of ice seems to be the most eloquent way of describing where we are. There is a certain type of madness in Northern Ireland society, a denial of what has happened to us. Maybe it's time to come out of denial and confront what has sunk us.'

Duffy, whose father was one of the few Roman Catholics allowed to work in the shipyard, sees the iceberg as a living sculpture which the city will watch melt away. 'The iceberg is a figure of fear and I hope its melting will have a cathartic effect. Ice is the alchemic opposite of the fire of hatred and sectarianism, mistrust and dislike, that has burned here.'"
