Wander_Land: New Sculpture about Landscape and Wandering

Opening event: Friday 30th June. 1st July – 5th August 2023

A group exhibition of new work specifically for Tremenheere Gallery and the surrounding garden area by 28 members of the Royal Society of Sculptors. Wander_Land responds to the relationship between landscape and wandering, with wandering, in a conscious sense, suggesting links with asceticism, joy, protest, well-being, environmental awareness and harmony. Inspiration also comes from pilgrimage and in particular St Michael’s Way, a pilgrim route that runs from St Uny’s Church in Lelant to St Michael’s Mount and passes through Tremenheere.

The artists’ responses to the theme are varied and intriguing, presenting humour, ambiguity, beauty, environmental critique, and playfulness. Featuring work spanning a wide range of media and sizes, the exhibition will run across both floors of Tremenheere Gallery and outdoors, near to the Gallery.

The participating artists members are mostly based in the South West. They first connected with each other during the Pandemic via Zoom. These virtual gatherings resulted in Together We Risethe exhibition at Chichester Cathedral in 2022 which the Royal Society of Sculptors members reflected on their experience to COVID lockdowns. Wander_Land at Tremenheere is  a next step, or sequel, to the show at Chichester Cathedral.

Wander_Land brings together artists Tabatha Andrews, Pauline Antram, Barbara Beyer, Michael Blow, Ann-Margreth Bohl, Philip Booth, Ros Burgin, Doug Burton, Fiona Campbell, Dallas Collins, Chris Dunseath, Emma Elliott/Susie Olczak, Jane Fox, Anna Gillespie, Simon Hitchens, Jane Jobling, Alistair Lambert, William Lasdun, Ian Marlow, Robert Marshall, Seamus Moran, Rebecca Newnham, Kate Parsons, Suzanne Blank Redstone, Mark Richards, Jilly Sutton, and David Worthington.
