Event description

Description

Mount Stuart Trust invites you to the opening of to The Power of Twelve, a solo exhibition by Christine Borland, as part of its ongoing Contemporary Visual Arts Programme on Saturday 23 June 2018, 3.00pm - 5.00pm.

You can also join us and Christine at our Artist's Talk at 3pm on 24 June, to book tickets go here.

to The Power of Twelve will comprise an inter-related series of new works making reference to lesser-known histories of the Great War and particular aspects of Mount Stuart’s wartime role.

A unifying factor through the exhibition will be the number 12, which recurs symbolically in major world religions and across traditions, mythology and superstition. These seemingly contradictory belief systems are reflected, yet happily co-exist, in the eclectic architecture, design and décor of Mount Stuart. Borland notes, “I have been interested in a resurgence of superstition and personalised belief systems during periods of extreme powerlessness associated with war.”

to The Power of Twelve will be presented throughout Mount Stuart; rooms used will include the swimming pool, conservatory (WWI operating theatre) Marble Hall (WWI ward) and Dining Room (WW1 surgical ward)

The exhibition will run from SATURDAY 23 JUNE – SUNDAY 18 NOVEMBER 2018.
