Caroline Broadhead, Nic Sandiland and Angela Woodhouse
8 March – 1 May 2017
Close Distance has been commissioned by Nottingham City Museums and Galleries.
Created for the magnificent rooftop Prospect Room at Wollaton Hall, with its views across the surrounding park and city beyond, this new commission offers visitors a unique experience of an area of the house rarely visited by the public.
Artists Caroline Broadhead, Nic Sandiland and Angela Woodhouse have taken inspiration from the building’s history and inhabitants. Sandiland and Woodhouse have worked with image, sound, and movement to create a series of intimate film works that are integrated with Broadhead’s reinvented found objects. All these elements find synergy in this atmospheric installation.
“…Images will shift from the open landscape to the enclosed and restricted spaces in which the servants were confined, indicating the labours and life that differentiated the people, their roles and their position in the 17th century household.”
To visit Close Distance, please book on to one of the special ‘Talk and View’ events, taking place every Wednesday and Saturday between 8 March and 1 May 2017, please see details below.
Concept and direction Angela Woodhouse
Performer Alice Labant
The viewer is caught in the gaze of the performer through a mirror. This is an intimate exchange where the complication of the physical and reflected image is made apparent. Through the doubling and the singular questions are placed about how this relationship is forming. Visitors are invited to respond via a Visitors’ book. This is a one on one event lasting 5 mins approx. for each individual.
Angela Woodhouse in collaboration with artist Caroline Broadhead and filmmaker Nic Sandiland have been commissioned by Nottingham Galleries and Museums to create an installation for the impressive seat of the Willoughby family Wollaton Hall, built in 1588. Opening in March 2017.’
