On 24 November we're opening the ‘Emergence’ art installations, featuring works by artists Tammy Woodrow and William Lindley.
The two artists took on a commission to create artwork for the Llanthony Secunda Priory grounds as part of the Llanthropology project, supported by a grant from Historic England’s Covid-19 Emergency Fund.
Our 5 acres of historic grounds offer a beautiful setting to host the installation, and also provided great inspiration for the artists.
Hosting the artworks outside in the grounds has also meant that the installation can go ahead, despite the national lockdown. The grounds are open 7 days a week and admission is free for all. This means everyone can come and enjoy the artworks, whilst practicing social distancing and conforming to the government Covid-19 regulations.
Tammy Woodrow’s installation is part of her ‘Kokon’ series, inspired by medieval texts: ‘As an experimental sculptor I am often inspired by history and locations. My abstract and organic structures are handmade and assembled with industrial materials.’
William Lindley is a visual artist, who creates works on paper and objects, as well as creating moving images and installation. ‘My works have been presented in various settings including galleries, concert halls, theatres, museums and historic buildings. For Emergence I have created a series of drawings on panel which open up and reimagine the fascinating history of Llanthony Secunda Priory.’
The Llanthropology project focuses on bringing art and activities to Gloucester, and bringing positivity in these challenging times. The title for this art display, 'Emergence', echoes this optimism, as well as referencing both the artists' work.
The 'Emergence' art installations are on display from 24 November till 17 December. The Llanthony Secunda Grounds are open 7 days a week and admission is free for all. Visitors are kindly reminded to adhere to the Covid-19 laws and social distancing guidelines.
