Gardens and James Turrell Skyspace at Dusk, Thursday 15th February, from 4.30pm
The first opportunity this year to see Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens outside of normal opening hours and to experience Tewlwolow Kernow (James Turrell’s Skyspace) at dusk.
Tewlwolow Kernow, Cornish for Twilight in Cornwall, is best seen at dawn or dusk, when background illumination under-lights the ceiling of the Skyspace and provides a subtle contrast with the sky. The shifting balance between the interior and exterior light will provide a contemplative and hypnotic experience.
