Hortus non Conclusus (Sneak preview of part of a Garden Exhibit Inspired by a Barbara Hepworth Textile Design in Vauxhall)
Fri 22 May, 2015
A glimpse of what’s to come to the Tate, an interactive open garden exhibit inspired by a 1950’s Barbara Hepworth Textile Design, concept by Rosie Irving and designed by Rosie Irving and Antonia Young.
Come and get a preview of the striking geometric shapes, cast limestone in shades of black and white, made by architectural stonework company, Haddonstone ltd. Enjoy seating areas and planters containing texturally stimulating plants, bursting with life, free for all to enjoy.
The garden will take its inspiration from the textile designs of Barbara Hepworth – the Yorkshire born sculptor, and one of Britain’s greatest artists, who died 40 years ago, in 1975. Coinciding with the first London museum retrospective of Hepworth’s work for five decades, opening at Tate Britain on 24 June 2015, the exhibition will highlight the different contexts and spaces in which Hepworth presented her work, from the studio to the landscape.
Located on the Vauxhall Pocket Park Piazza outside the Tea House Theatre , there’s the chance to meet the makers and bag some give away items at the Friday lunchtime garden party events, hosted by Vauxhall One on Fridays 22nd, 29th May and 5th June from 12-3pm. In typical British garden party style there will be a live acoustic band and Pimms for all to enjoy.
A unique chance to get a first impression of at what this artistic beauty may become when it takes up summer residence just across the River at Tate Britain. Come and be inspired!
