Where function ends: Responses to the Architecture of Sir Edwin Lutyens | 14.07.19 – 27.10.19

To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944), Hestercombe Gallery presents new work by three artists that responds to the legacy of the man whose designs transformed the Hestercombe site.

Through a sculptural intervention in the galleries, incorporating new works from his ongoing series The Houses, Alex Hartley will explore the contested relationship between Lutyens’ architecture and Modernism.

Liz Nicols’ new photographs will examine the ways in which Lutyens developed his ‘elemental mode’ of architecture to articulate private and public acts of remembrance in his designs for war cemeteries along the Western Front; and artist in residence Oliver Sutherland’s research into the sculptural and poetic relationship between Lutyens’ landscaping and Gertrude Jekyll’s planting in the Formal Garden at Hestercombe will be presented in a moving image work that layers performance, sound and written narratives.

The Gallery is open daily 11am to 5pm.
