Briefly IN TRANSIT was a Sculpture Trail I curated in partnership with Stephens House & Gardens, September 2020. Funded by Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants & supported by Avenue House Estate Trust.
I invited 9 regional female artists to create a series of ephemeral artworks that responded to the landscaped grounds at Stephens House, which could be quickly installed and dismantled, to enable a safe arts experience both for artists and the public during the pandemic.
The framework of a sculpture trail provided the perfect platform to facilitate social distancing among audiences wishing to access the arts locally, during lockdown easing. Out in the elements and the open-air, equipped with a trail map, the public could walk the landscape and view the sculptures, safe in the knowledge that they would be able to maintain their own social distance, whilst remaining swiftly on the move and briefly in-transit.
