Heartwood 2017 exhibition featuring new work responding to Hopetoun House by
Fanny Lam Christie
Martine Foltier Pugh
The four artists have installed artwork throughout the house, the garden and in the gallery. They include sculptures, artist books, collages, drawings, video and sound work.
Kyra Clegg’s installations respond to the twofold idea of space as being both private and public in Hopetoun House. Fanny Christie looks at the connections with nature in their architecture and surrounding grounds. Su presents the theme of Visible-Invisible, with works relating to degradation damage, restoration and conservation of objects and materials, while Martine has created a series of alternative books in the library.
Entry to the gallery is free, while for the house ticket is required as normal.
