Bring Into Being is an experimental programme of art commissions, events and workshops marking a new chapter for Chiswick House and Gardens.
Presenting three site-specific artworks by Peter Adjaye, Jaimini Patel and Turner Prize winning Mark Wallinger, alongside workshops and events, Bring Into Being ‘responds to the many incarnations of Chiswick House and tests the future possibilities of our Grade 1 listed site’.
Chiswick House Trust is looking to widen the scope and the appeal of the House and Gradens, to attract more visitors, and to encourage existing visitors to use the park in defferent ways.
“The global pandemic has brought into sharp focus a need for self-reflection and reconnection with nature. A year of separation from our friends and families further highlighted our basic desire for human connection. As we navigate the personal, social, economic and environmental challenges of the 21st century, what role can Chiswick House play in supporting the emergence of new futures?
“Bring Into Being covers a wealth of topics including time, natural cycles, representation, consciousness and perception, and broadens the ways in which we can reflect on and connect with this site, our surroundings, ourselves and each other”.
Jaimini Patel’s artwork, created from discarded organic materials from the Gardens invites reflection on temporality and transformation. Mark Wallinger’s artwork, presented in the Exedra behind the House, is a poignant reflection on time that brings together fleeting moments with the daily and yearly cycles of the earth. Peter Adjaye’s artwork, created with musicians of South Asian and West African heritage, responds to diverse stories hidden in plain sight at Britain’s historic buildings and places.
Adults £11, Family £23.50 (Two adults and up to three children).
