TREMENHEERE SCULPTURE GARDENS, VISIBLE FROM 28 JULY

TREMENHEERE SCULPTURE GARDENS

 

On 27 July, words inspired by the subject of natural recovery and written by artist, Penny Florence, were ‘scorched’ into a sloping area of short grass at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens.

 

The words appeared over a couple of days following the 'branding' as the grass dies and alters from green to black. Over the following weeks; the time it takes for the grass to recover, the poem transitioned from black to brown, back to green, until finally disappearing once recovery is complete.

 

The action of scorching the words was documented by film during their transition and subsequent recovery, meaning that the only eventual evidence of the installation will be documented.
