5785542Venus In The Landscape
DateThursday 10th January 2019 to Saturday 23rd February 2019
DescriptionThis exhibition presents contemporary visual arts practice, which draws inspiration from pre-history and the landscapes that have witnessed the creativity of mankind for millennia. Venus in the Landscape showcases the collection of Mirka Golden-Hann's 365 ceramic female figures inspired by the Ice Age Venuses. The installation was made during 2018 - Year of the Woman as a study of the female. The intention for this installation is to later intern the individual figurines into landscapes between the UK and the Czech Republic. Together with this work the exhibition will include monumental felt work by Sarah Waters and flint-inspired sculpture by Wendy de Salis. Sarah Waters and Wendy de Salis both draw inspiration from the area of the New Forest and the prehistoric stone monuments in Wiltshire. This exhibition was curated with special thanks to Wessex Archaeology, namely Linda Coleman and Dr. Phil Harding for their academic advice and to Martin Green for sharing his knowledge and his private prehistoric collection. Also to Karel Spalek for the documentary and background knowledge into Moravian Venuses.
