Linger an exhibition of Sitting Places

Share

Eligibility:

16 May – 9 September 2020 

Following on from the hugely successful summer 2019 Art Unbound exhibition, the Rococo Garden, in Painswick, Gloucestershire, is staging ‘Linger’ – an exhibition of ‘sitting places’ – for summer 2020. We are putting a call out to artists, designer-makers and artisans for imaginative approaches to the creation of garden seating. The work will complement the spirit of the Garden and encourage appreciation of its character. As such ‘Linger’ will be an invitation for visitors to take the weight off their feet and while away time as they soak up the beauty of their surroundings.

We will produce a map to accompany the exhibition, which will be advertised locally and nationally. All works will be for sale, unless an artist stipulates otherwise. Works, if sold, must remain in the Garden until the end of the exhibition. Artists are responsible for the transport, installation and de-installation of their pieces. 

BRIEF
These sitting places should be made from the kind of materials that would have been available in the 1740s and, where possible, locally sourced. We are open to all kinds of interpretations. The pieces selected will be for sale. As such, we are looking for a range of work, from high-end conceptual installations to affordable, functional pieces.

NARRATIVE for reference
Back in the 1740s, Benjamin Hyett designed an unusual garden to entertain his guests at Painswick House. This was a theatrical place, nestled in a hidden valley and perfect for holding intimate garden parties. It was a country gentleman's experimental creation, not the realisation of a horticultural dream. Instead of an orderly flower garden, this is a haven of peace and tranquillity to explore, sprinkled with quirky features ‘to tickle your fancy’.

Rococo describes a period of art fashionable in Europe in the 1700s, identifiable particularly in furniture and architecture. Some of the key features include highly ornamental decoration, the use of pastel colours and asymmetry. The art of the period often celebrated beauty and sexuality.

In England, this was a time when there was a certain ‘joie de vivre’ amongst the upper- middle classes. They showed off their wealth through indulging in the flamboyant and frivolous. Their gardens became the playroom of the house – spaces where they entertained and partied.

EXECUTION
We are inviting applications for imaginative, artistic approaches to seating, using materials readily available in the 1740s. Your piece must, therefore, be fit-for-purpose, i.e. strong, durable, appropriate for outdoor use and comfortable to sit on – and supplied ready to install. We have some felled green wood, mainly ash, onsite and would also be open to a discussion about the possibility of creating pieces in situ.

An opportunity to exhibit and work will be on sale.

Humans have decorated their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years. The meanings of these tattoos vary greatly across cultures-- displays of social rankings, punishment for criminals, expressions of spirituality, celebrating achievements in life and war, and simple statements of fashion. It is a form of expression that connects us across cultures, languages, and belief systems.
This exhibition is intended to showcase the infinite possibilities of tattoo art in all of its forms and styles. Express your individualism and creativity by translating body art to fine art. From flash sheets to fully-realized paintings, photographic documentation to three-dimensional representation, we want to see the unique ways in which you express your Life in Ink.
