‘Second Site’ presents new contemporary work by five artists who have responded to Hestercombe Gallery’s reclaimed spaces through exploration of Hestercombe’s history and recent re-unification between the house and gardens. The exhibition explores both exterior and interior spaces, as well as builds collaborations with others that work at Hestercombe and the surrounding areas.
Jo Lathwood has been resident artist since the gallery first opened its doors to the public in May 2014, since then she has spent time in her pop-up studio absorbing the surrounding by day and by night. She has been particularly drawn to the public’s reaction to the house.
The work encapsulates a diverse range of media from drawing and sculpture, interventions to sound and film.
