Saturday 10 November – Sunday 24 February at Hestercombe, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton, Somerset TA2 8LG

A contemporary art exhibition inspired by the surroundings of Hestercombe will showcase the work of three artists this autumn/winter.

Sarah BennettMegan Calver and Philippa Lawrence have been directly engaged with Hestercombe House and Gardens over three years and the resulting exhibition has developed from these experiences.

It features exhibits using a range of media, from photography and sculpture to drawing and text.

Collectively interested in issues related to labour and the management of landscape and nature, Materiality: provisional states aims to examine and critique human and non-human centred activity found in Hestercombe’s past and present.

The exhibition stems from archival research as well as ‘Disclosures and Dialogues’, a series of dialogue sessions with artists, curators, historians, academics and garden practitioners.
