Idylls of the Field
August 13th 2022 - September 24th 2022
“Taking the title of the late 19th century book by Francis A. Knight, Idylls of the Field, is an exhibition of new works by artist duo, Forest + Found, set in the heart of Withiel, a small and ancient settlement in rural Cornwall. The original book is an intimate observation of nature, in which Knight describes in immersive detail the birds and fields that surround him. This lyrical document of the British Isles written in the century that followed the industrial revolution, was the catalyst for both artists, QEST Winch Design Scholar Max Bainbridge & QEST Jenifer Emery Scholar Abigail Booth, to question the poetic veneer Knight so vividly describes, and to dig deeper into the realities of the rural environment that are so often masked behind the romanticised ‘idylls’ of nature.” – Extract from essay by Angus D. Birditt
Exhibition is open by appointment until 24 September 2022.
