The Big Chill Art Trail

Including: Gavin Turk and Deborah Curtis, Simon Faithfull, Francis Upritchard
Big Chill Festival, Eastnor, 2008

This year an intimate woodland trail takes you on a mysterious journey of storytelling, theatre, games and myth with artworks by Gavin Turk and Deborah Curtis, Lucienne Cole, Simon Faithfull, Paul Gittins, Juneau Projects, Kathleen Herbert, Francis Upritchard, Helen Maurer, Grace Ndiritu and Melanie Stidolph. Curated by Alice Sharp.

Inspired by the captivating Eastnor landscape, animal inhabitants and history - sculpture, video, performance, photography and interactive theatre will guide you from moonrise into the night. Through ancient trees, into grass clearings, over bridges to the undergrowth of mythical imagination and fairy tale fantasy, you are invited to partake in the art (and nature) trail with an open mind, as each encounter and experience will reveal the unexpected, taking you on an unforgettable journey through magical locations tucked away from the main festival site.

Illuminated light boxes by Melanie Stidolph show photographs taken through repeated visits to Eastnor. Capturing low key moments in the life of the park and transforming them into iconic images open to wider readings.

"The Art Trail has established itself as a significant part of the Big Chill festival specialising in presenting artworks in an exceptional setting. The 2008 Art Trail builds on its ten year history which has included internationally recognized artists Gary Hume, Ackroyd and Harvey, Zatorski and Zatorski and Brian Eno". Alice Sharp – Curator
