We’ll be showing a selection of photographs, specially chosen to complement Mottisfont’s current Discovering Britain: the Shell Heritage Art Collection exhibition, in The Caravan Gallery during our residency at Mottisfont, a National Trust property famed for its rose gardens, near Romsey, Hampshire.
Throughout our residency we’ll be creating new, site-specific work, including photographic portraits of visitors. We’ll also be documenting Mottisfont in general, celebrating its unique characteristics and highlighting unusual and overlooked details.
The exhibition will grow and evolve during the residency: a selection of images will be printed on site and displayed next to the caravan, and some of this work will be exhibited in the Beech Circle after the residency has finished.
We’ll also be asking you to share your thoughts by writing notes and completing intriguing surveys about Britain, Mottisfont and the National Trust. This material will then be incorporated into our display. We look forward to giving you a guided tour of The Caravan Gallery and chatting to visitors as we explore the site with our cameras!
