Art Installations in Selected Hides at Wicken Fen Nature Reserve responding to two year collaborative residency at the reserve. By Artists Helen Terry and Sally Tyrie

About

For two years, artists Helen Terry and Sally Tyrie have been visiting Wicken Fen at different seasons to experience the unique landscape and environment of the Fen. 

Hidden will celebrate some of the small and often overlooked details of the Fen. Sally and Helen have installed small pieces of mixed media work in selected hides to invite visitors to share in some of the less obvious insights that have inspired them. Glimpses through woodpecker holes.  Shafts of sunlight.  The textures of weathered windows.  Things you may not usually notice.   

The installations are deliberately small and unobtrusive.  Visitors are invited to look into corners, above windows, through holes and cracks for their own sake.  Instead of entering the hide merely to look out at the fen, you are asked to look more closely at the environment of the hide itself. 

About the artists:

Both artists combine photography, mark making and print techniques to create layered, mixed media work.
