Guest curated by Amy Lay-Pettifer

In considering how we gather and extract from nature for our own pleasure - to fantasise, decorate, bask and escape - the exhibition pays close attention to the landscape’s own amorous agency; an equal and opposite will that meets ours from the other direction.

Through a series of installations within the gardens, these artists investigate the melting point between bodies and elements – a specific chemistry that gives rise to new landscapes, textures and strategies for survival. Emerging from the heat of summer sun, from manicured lawns and from the strata of deep, excavated time, these works join the familiar elements of the natural world in a thorny, generative romance.
