This free artist-led walk will take people through Waddington, moving from the lower village up to the older part of the village, taking in three new large-scale temporary artworks on banners.
The walk will include readings at the locations of the three artworks, which have been created as part of an ongoing artist residency at the archive in the Tennyson Research Centre in Lincoln. Andrew Bracey, Danica Maier and Sarah Bennett have spent the last two and half years rummaging, exploring and making as part of their residency which forms part of the long-term research project 'Bummock: New Artistic Responses to Unseen Parts of the Archive'. The Bummock is the large part of an iceberg hidden beneath the surface of the sea. The project focuses on the unseen or lesser known parts of the archive (i.e. the ‘bummock’) as catalysts for the creation of new artworks. Housed within the Tennyson Research Centre is a wealth of information and material about Alfred Tennyson, alongside intriguing content concerning his wider family. These less well-known figures have been the motivating focus for the new artworks by all three artists.
The walk will also take in the Waddington Heritage Trail which features sculptural artworks by Grennan & Sperandio.
The event will include a break for refreshments at St Michael’s Church, Waddington with an optional family workshop led by Kate Buckley, inspired by Tennyson’s poetry.
The walk is part of NK Walking Festival Saturday 13 July – Saturday 27 July 2019.
