5920759Artist Rooms: Richard Long: Being In The Moment
DateSaturday 22nd February 2020 to Saturday 23rd May 2020
DescriptionThe relationship between man and the natural world will be explored in an exhibition by internationally acclaimed British artist Richard Long. ARTIST ROOMS Richard Long - Being in the Moment will open at the Thelma Hulbert in Honiton, East Devon on February 22 and run until May 23, 2020. Drawing from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, the exhibition presents works spanning 40 years of Long's artistic practice, starting with his early experiments near his hometown of Bristol. There will be 21 works on show, presenting the full breadth of Long's practice, including photography, sculpture, text, drawings, maps and diagrams. The exhibition launches Culture and Climate 2020 a programme of exhibitions, symposiums and events that are set against the context of Thelma Hulbert and East Devon District Council's commitment to Devon's Climate Change Emergency declaration, and the University of Exeter's declaration of an environment and climate emergency. Delivered through a new partnership with Arts and Culture University of Exeter and East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, audiences will be invited to participate in a range of activities taking place at the University, Thelma Hulbert Gallery and diverse locations across East Devon. The exhibition takes its title from the work Being in the Moment (1999). This portfolio of four photographs will be shown for the first time as part of the ARTIST ROOMS programme. The work illustrates not only the continuity in Long's methods and practice but also his deep affinity with landscapes across the world by representing some of his epic walks across Britain, Tanzania and Ecuador over a 30-year period. For more than 50 years, Long has been at the forefront of conceptual art working beyond the confines of traditional material and questioning how we view the relationship between landscapes and art. His investigations into nature, using mediums such as walking, and working with found materials such as mud, earth and slate, remain as relevant today as they ever were. Long's approach to his artistic practice is very much about the relationship between people and nature, from collecting mud from his local River Avon and Delabole slate from Cornwall, to the way the work is made, positioning stone using his hands or making gestures with his feet.
