at The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge - FREE
Edward Chell's installation of sixty plant silhouettes presents a virtual roadside verge or woodland floor displayed alongside collections at The Beaney.
The exhibition is accompanied by an artist's book, published by Stour Valley Arts, which includes a brilliant new essay on the history and continuing significance of the silhouette, by writer, critic and historian Jenny Uglow, and an interview with Edward. This lovely artist's book-cum-botanical guide will be just the thing for ambling through the forest, plant-spotting, and just as helpful when doing likewise en route to the office.
Book launch 22 June
Book launch from 3 5, Saturday 22 June 2013
Exhibition open from 22 June - 8 Sept at The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, Canterbury.
Exhibition part-funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
