Places for Art and Art for Places, Landscape and Arts Network Symposium

This Event took place on
Saturday, 28 June 2014
to view a video of this event

please click here

A day of talks by artists and designers whose practice focuses around place-orientated art. From public art and social engagement, to painting, poetry, projection and sound, a diversity of art projects will be presented which explore the spirit of place through either physically working in the landscape or taking inspiration from it. Whatever the media, whether directed by a cultural, historical, physical or ecological context, the emphasis of discussion will focus on the artists unique approach and interpretation of place.


A new project by member Rosie Leventon

now & then

Now & then is one of the new proposals I have made for some interactive environmental artworks for the Woodland Trust.

They will be sited at the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Woods at Normanton le Heath in Leicestershire. The brief was to respond to the local archaeology that has been discovered on site. Finds include a Bronze Age palstave or axe-head, and some Iron Age crop marks and burial mounds. Now & then differs from an amphitheatre because it has no parallel seats or stone. Instead it has steps that spiral downwards to connect us with the different archaeological layers as we progress down into the past, and up again into the light.

The ring of Pedunculate Oaks that will surround it in years to come are not only well loved by people, but are immensely important to wildlife for food and shelter.
Other earthworks will also be site referential and will contain rare plants as well as indigenous bushes and trees.
