Using silver birch gathered from around the vast Welbeck estate in Sherwood Forest and willow from Somerset, artist Laura Ellen Bacon has created a huge, new, ‘human-scale’ sculpture to twine around the ground floor at The Harley Gallery at Welbeck.
LAID will be abstract in design although the sculpture is loosely inspired by hedge laying. Its monumental, site-specific scale will allow visitors to enter the sculpture and wander within its nest-like intimacy for an immersive experience that displays the intricacy of her work.
It is her largest woven space in a gallery setting for nearly four years.
It continues her work in making raw materials into large-scale artworks, in both interior and landscape settings. It can be seen until October 7.
