An exhibition organised for Art Licks Weekend 2017 showcasing site-specific works by Olwyn Carroll, Sam Carvosso, Emily Motto and George Yarker.

About

Art Licks Weekend falls on a time of year traditionally known as Hærfest. A seasonal festivity, welcoming in the Autumn through the celebration of the growth cycle that is tied to the moon. 

Moon When the Calves Grow Hair draws inspiration from the main themes of what Harvest stands for; work, community, food and folklore. During this celebration, activities take place such as: the baking of bread in thanks for grain, poetry readings and the singing of seasonal songs. One of the most significant events leading up to Harvest Moon is the decoration of the home.

Four artists have been invited to create site-specific work that touches on the natural and fantastical elements of Harvest in relation to today, taking into consideration the processes, work and materials that are involved. The gathering of Harvest marks the end of the growing season; the result of a long year of work and strife. Like the reaping of the crops, Moon When the Calves Grow Hair will celebrate the fruits of the artists' labour and time.
