Taking The Air
February - August 2017
This residency was inspired by the 18th-century landscape designer Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who created a park in the Surrey Hills in which people could take a leisurely stroll, enjoy the picturesque views and experience the health benefits of fresh air.
During the six-month residency, the variations in air quality around the 260-acre estate were observed. The humid stillness of the Japanese garden was contrasted with the cool breeze sweeping over the lake and rising up to the Parterre (in front of Gatton Hall) where birds of prey would hover on the updraft.
