Arnolfini invited artist Sam Francis to investigate A Year In the Life of a Field, 40 years on from Lizzie Cox’s original multi-disciplinary project of the same name.

About

In March 1981, Arnolfini hosted Somerset, by artist Lizzie Cox. A multi-disciplinary project based on the creative documentation of a ‘year in the life of a field’ in Somerset, the piece was eventually presented as eight-foot square fabric box, hung with textiles printed with motifs recalling the changing seasons.

Forty years on, Sam Francis, an artist and producer based in Weston Super Mare, will respond to the archival traces of the piece, the intriguing canon of UK land art, and the relationship of Arnolfini as an urban arts centre with our largely rural Westcountry region.

Arnolfini are delighted to launch this project as part of their 60th anniversary celebrations. Look out for Sam’s work appearing Arnolfini’s blog through 2021 and on her website samfrancisco.co.uk
