As Hestercombe moves towards becoming a Centre for Art and Landscape this seminar brings together three internationally acclaimed creatives who work with landscape. The aim of the session will be to explore approaches to making, siting and exhibiting artworks in the public realm.

The speakers:

Clare Lilley is director of programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and also curates the Frieze Sculpture Park in London. She has curated shows by many of the worlds most important sculptors including Ai Wei Wei, Fiona Banner, James Turrell, Bill Viola and William Turnbull.

Tania Kovats returns to Hestercombe where she exhibited ‘Oceans’ in 2014, the first solo show at the gallery. She is renowned for producing sculptures, large-scale installations and temporal works which explore our experience and understanding of landscape. Kovats recently made ‘Bleached’ as part of Hull 2017 and distributed Dirty Water: London’s Low Tide, a tabloid newspaper she created as part of Art on the Tideway public art programme.

Alex Hartley’s work takes many forms, usually addressing utopian ideologies and our complicated, sometimes contradictory, attitudes toward built and natural environments. His practice is wide ranging, comprising wall-based sculptural photographic compositions, film-making, climbing, artist publications, architectural installations and ambitious works of land-art. Following 2012’s Cultural Olympiad commission ‘Nowhereisland’; he continues to create a considerable body of work. Last year he exhibited at both the Folkestone and Yokohama Triennials. Hartley is represented by Victoria Miro Gallery.
