Art at Tremenheere
Dramatic landscape and planting provide the backdrop to contemplative but inspirational artworks. Internationally renowned artists such as James Turrell and David Nash have interacted with the landscape to create site specific permanent works which harmonise with the setting. The land also provides a forum for ever-changing temporary, or even ephemeral arts in all its forms.
An underground elliptical domed chamber which James Turrell has designed as a space from which to view the sky, especially at twilight.
A Victorian underground tank for storing water has been transformed by the artist to a natural light projection space. Images from the tree canopy slowly become visible in a darkened chamber. Atmospheric...magical.
Open for viewing Saturdays 10.30am-12.30pm.
Striking installation within the landscape - scaffolding cage encloses bamboo poles which could represent repressed energy in modern society.
Kishio Sugar is a founder member of the influential Mona-Ha art movement in Japan.
Minimalist installation - a line of logs within woodland. Incised line along logs may represent one's journey through life. The entire piece mirrors the cycle of life and decay in the natural world.
Powerful collection of charred oak shapes in a sculpted huddle. David Nash has sited this work to resonate with the mature oak woodland and bluebells in season.
