Already present in the castle’s sculpture garden with Full Moon Circle (2003), Richard Long is back in Houghton Hall with the exhibition Earth Sky. Still using material found on site, Long created a new series of site specific works made of kaolin, tree roots, stones and slate, evocative of primitive shapes such as spirals, crosses, lines or circles.
« A quoi rêvent les forêts ? »
Les filles du calvaire Gallery (Paris, France)
Exhibition open July 1st to July 29th, 2017
American anthropologist Eduardo Kohn’s essay How Forests Think was released in France at the end of February. It quickly became a reference in the field of anthropology, a science that studies the human being and now, thanks to this text, the non-human. This text inspired Lucie Touya, exhibition curator of “À quoi rêvent les forêts?” (What Forests Dream?) to enter the depths of forests through the visions of seven contemporary artists (François Fleury, Noémie Goudal, Jean-Yves Leloup, Kettly Noël, Laura Huertas Millán, Olya Kroytor, Susana Mejia).

Middleheim Museum (Antwerp, Belgium)
In 1993, Antwerp was designated European Capital of Culture. In this context, the Middleheim Museum decided to add more contemporary work to its collection. Richard Deacon’s sculpture Never Mind (1993) was purchased that same year and symbolized the museum’s new vision. Twenty-four years later, the artist, rather than restoring the work, decided to recreate it from scratch by using different materials. Never Mind is the highlight of the exhibition but about thirty other works are on display inside and outside the museum’s pavilions. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover the work of this British artist who considers himself as a « maker » rather than as a sculptor.
