We are from Dust Artspace Launch
December sees the transformation of Ashton Court Estate’s grounds into an art park, exhibiting sculptures from both the UK and USA to explore ideas of play, protest and transformation.
Date : 6th December 2020
The collaboration between We Are From Dust and Artspace Lifespace will consist of an exhibition of four artists taking over the grounds around the Arts Mansion.
With support from Arts Council England, artists Paige Tashner, Hugo Farmer, Andrea Greenlees and Cjay Roughgarden will form an interactive trail of immersive artworks. The park will be free to attend as usual and guests will be able to interact with the art with their smartphones or tablets.
We Are From Dust are a London-based arts organisation dedicated to bringing the transformative power of interactive art to public spaces. In collaboration with Bristol-based arts organisation Artspace Lifespace, they have brought together artists whose work can usually be seen in the Nevada desert during the Burning Man festival, with artists from Bristol and London dealing with contemporary issues of voice, self-reflection and protest.
The launch event for the park will take place on Sunday 6th December from 4-6pm outside the front of the house with walkabout circus performances and special guests Air Giants who will be showcasing two of their beautiful expressive large-scale soft robotic sculptures near the pond. This is a family-friendly event.
