Contemporary Art Comes To A Medieval Castle
Artists Sarah Price, Geraldine Pilgrim, Catherine Bertola, Linda Florence, and KMA (Kit Monkman and Tom Wexler) will create new art works inspired by the building and each artist will work in a specific area of the monument and grounds including a large scale work cut into the lawn in front of Tattershall's castle done by Linda Florence. Catherine Bertola's offering will be a site-specific work that uses images of weaving and spinning from folk fairy tales and will result in golden cobwebs hung in the castle. Geraldine Pilgrim will create a work that will use packing cases and crates to explore imagery associated with towers and keeps. The work from KMA will be inspired by the castle cellars and will take the form of a film and audio narrative that combines fact and fiction. Sarah Price will create a secret wild garden on the castle grounds to invoke the time when the castle was abandoned and overgrown. The exhibition will take place at Tattershall Castle from August 8 – 23.
