Installation: 15 - 22 September, daylight hours
Live event: 22 September, 8pm
Wayfaring is a journey of exploration, inspired by the present landscape and ancient routes of the Icknield Way.
The culmination of our groundbreaking Lifecycles and Landcapes project, artists And Now: will create a series of artworks in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty inviting audiences to think about movement and migration; how we arrive at, understand, inhabit, protect and leave a space.
Using local and found materials the artists will craft an installation on Maiden Castle which audiences can move through, investigate and contribute to. On the final weekend illumination, music and performance will transform the installation in a rousing celebration.
The Wayfaring digital artwork, an evolving sketchbook of observations and learnings created by And Now: that compliments the live work can be found here.
Co-commissioned by Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Corn Exchange Newbury, 101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space and Oerol Festival.
