Exhibition of modern and contemporary sculpture: 30 May – 1 December 2019
An unmissable exhibition at Wisley provides an opportunity to discover the work of six eminent sculptors, set against the backdrop of Wisley's beautiful gardens and iconic horticulture.
Sculpture at Wisley 2019 features the work of seminal 20th and 21st century artists: Henry Moore, Lynn Chadwick, Tracey Emin, Phillip King, Henry Bruce and Philip Haas.
Running from 30 May to 1 December 2019 the exhibition highlights the relationship between sculpture and the cultivated landscape.
Visitors can follow a self-guided map to discover the sculptures in thought-provoking locations .
Curated by noted sculptor Susan Bacon, the sculptures have been carefully sited around the 240-acre garden. Lady Bacon explains: “Each piece of sculpture we have chosen connects to the landscape and becomes part of it. Sited within the ever-changing long views of Wisley, these huge pieces affect that change as well as opening the eye to see both the gardens and the sculpture in a different way.”
Among the four Henry Moore artworks is his vast Sheep Piece – only the second time the sculpture has been exhibited outside of the Henry Moore Foundation.
Pieces from the Estate of Lynn Chadwick include Little Girl I, II and III, and three of Chadwick’s series of Beasts.
Larger-than-life works by Phillip King and Henry Bruce take up residence in locations chosen to emphasise their dramatic scale, while an instantly recognisable neon by Tracey Emin and maquettes of the Four Seasons by Philip Haas are viewable inside Wisley’s new Welcome building.
Price included with normal garden admission.
