-----------------

Studio Morrison's ‘MOTHER…’ is a large-scale structure located at Wicken Fen nature reserve. The work engages with the connections between the natural world and our mental health and is inspired by writer Richard Mabey’s book ‘Nature Cure’.

Helen Cammock's ‘They Call it Idlewild’ is a new film and text work developed during her residency at Wysing during the autumn and winter of 2019/20. The works are inspired by histories, photographs and artworks uncovered by Cammock in Wysing’s archive, and respond to Wysing as a place that enables artists to take things at their own speed.

Naomi Harwin's solo presentation, 'Encounter', investigates materiality and form to create an ambitious, immersive installation, in a new small exhibiting space in our main studio building.
