Lost & Found, Grizedale Forest,

Date uploaded: April 9, 2014

Forest Art Works announces the launch of Lost & Found? an exhibition by Edwina fitzPatrick, which 

explores Grizedale Forest’s contribution to sited artwork over the last four decades, examining how the past and ongoing artwork might be revealed and disseminated through an ‘archive’.

Many of these artworks have long since disappeared through either being decommissioned or by morphing back into the landscape, so this archive is the first opportunity to see all of the sited sculptures together in the environment that inspired them.

The exhibition presents both a digital and physical archive of the artists' work, revealing how this has evolved and changed over time. It also features a dual screen video work shot (in part) from a balloon to give a different perspective on the Forest.

Lost & Found? features artwork and explorations of an AHRC funded collaborative practice based PhD, undertaken by Edwina fitzPatrick, working alongside Glasgow School of Art and Forestry Commission England at Grizedale Forest, Cumbria.
