The Art of the Garden: Bringing the Outdoors In
Sat 27 May, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm BSTFree
To celebrate the official 2017 Chelsea Fringe, Hignell Gallery will be hosting a talk inspired by their latest exhibition of sculptor Ben Russell’s work, featuring a range of sculptural alabaster, onyx and marble cacti – The Cactus House – at Mayfair’s Hignell Gallery.
Hosted by Jane Perrone, Gardening Editor at The Guardian; in discussion with Ben Russell, Sculptor and Abby Hignell, Gallerist
‘The Art of the Garden: Bringing the Outdoors In’ will explore the timeless relationship between art and nature, looking at how the garden has continuously inspired sculpture and art over decades. With the arts, fashion and design taking inspiration from nature this spring, 2017 has seen cacti take centre stage, influencing everything from printmaking to interior design. The panelists will examine the desire to bring the outdoors in, blurring the boundaries between domestic and outdoor spaces and discussing what this means for the future landscape of the art world.
