This exhibition illustrates the ways in which ten international contemporary
artists explore various forms of landscape architecture, such Douglas
(Canada), Gilbert & George (UK), Antony Gormley (UK), Cristina Iglesias
(Spain), Takahiko Limura (Japan), Wolfgang Laib (Germany), Giuseppe Penone
(Italy), Diana Thater (USA) and Jan Vercruysse (Belgium).
The exhibiton will be "sprinkled" with memories of gardens and parks drawn from the past, including redentions of gardens and ruins by Giovanni Battista Piranesi as well as medieval texts on the garden such as the Ruralium Commodorum of Petrus de Crescentiis.
In the Cafe': Joanna Usherwood: "Surface Tension"
Probing the "nature" of the art, science and industry, these intensely coloured and textural paintings provide diverse ways of seeing the world - exploring detail, changing scale and altering perceptions to make the world unrecognisable.
