Last Thursday was the installation day for the site based project at Wicken Fen Nature Reserve that myself and fellow Artist Helen Terry have been working on. After months of planning and 2 years of regular visits to this wonderful, magical location we got to see how all the work looked 'in situ'
Hidden; is a series of mixed media installations sited in 3 specific Hides at the reserve. Sometimes fairly visible and at other times in more secretive positions within the Hide, they respond to the observations and shared insights that have resulted from our research, both at the Fen and in the studio.
They 'invite visitors to share in some of the less obvious insights that have inspired' ' Glimpses through woodpecker holes. Shafts of sunlight. The textures of weathered windows. Things you may not usually notice'
The Installations can be discovered at The reserve until Wednesday 25th April in The Boardwalk Hide, Eastmere Hide and Charlies Hide.
Visitors will be able to pick up a map with locations and details in the Visitor Centre - open 10 - 5 every day. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/wicken-fen-nature-reserve/features/reflections-and-revelations-hidden-art
Meet the Artists - On Saturday 14th April at 11 - 4 pm in the learning Centre.
