Local sculptor and installation artist Theo Gayer-Anderson will be exhibiting ‘Oracle’ at the Tithe Barn, in Landbeach.
Theo says “Oracle is a fully immersive audio and visual installation that celebrates the rise of jellyfish in our toxic oceans and draws attention to the very real and imminent dangers of climate change. The Tithe Barn makes for the perfect setting to showcase my work.”
The installation artwork will occupy the entire timber frame Tithe Barn, so that the spectator has to walk through in order to engage fully with the work of art. What makes installation art different from sculpture or other traditional art forms is that it is a complete unified experience, rather than a display of separate, individual artworks. The focus on how the viewer experiences the work and the desire to provide an intense experience for them is a dominant theme in installation art.
The Landbeach Tithe Barn is one of just a handful of buildings of its type remaining in Cambridgeshire. Ours is unique with so many historic features such as a thatched roof, elm timber frame, timber granary and brick threshing floor. Experts believe the barn may well date to the medieval period.
The temporary installation will be free for the public to view on Saturday 10, Sunday 11, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October 2020 by timed entry.
