People who have saved this event:


In partnership with English Heritage, Meadow Arts presents In Ruins – an ambitious art exhibition in the extraordinary ruins of Witley Court in Worcestershire, focusing on our enduring attraction to ruins and how they are still relevant today.


Contemporary artworks inhabit the grounds and ruined mansion, including new monumental sculptures by Alex Hartley; stunning photographs by Marchand & Meffre, Amelie Labourdette and Stuart Whipps; further sculptures from Tim Etchells, Holly Hendry and Jack Evans; postcards by Ellen Harvey and a disused Woolworth’s shopfront by Matthew Darbyshire.

Artists have explored ruins for hundreds of years, fascinated by their value as emblems of the passing of time: like a time machine to the past, each ruin was once someone’s future.

In Ruins is an exhibition curated and produced by Meadow Arts, delivered in partnership with English Heritage, supported by Arts Council England.
