Anish Kapoor: Flashback

4 August – 9 October 2011

This exhibition brings together two works – one early piece and a major recent sculpture – selected by the artist in close dialogue with the Arts Council Collection. White Sand, Red Millet, Many Flowers (1982) demonstrates Kapoor’s early interest in applying raw pigment to a range of organic forms. Untitled (2010), on loan from the artist, is a monumental blood-red wax bell form standing over five metres tall, displayed for the first time in the UK.

 

This exhibition by renowned artist and Turner Prize winner, Anish Kapoor, is the second in a major series of touring exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection entitled Flashback. Taking as its starting point the Collection’s founding principle of supporting emerging artists through the purchase of their work, the series showcases internationally renowned British artists whose works have been acquired by the Collection. The monographic exhibitions combine works from the Collection with new pieces borrowed directly from the artists, giving a unique insight into the evolution of these key figures in British art.

 

With support from Creative Scotland and The University of Edinburgh.

Charles Jencks: Metaphysical Landscapes

13 May – 18 September 2011

Year 3 at Jupiter Artland features a special gallery exhibition by Charles Jencks – Metaphysical Landscapes. The show gives a rare insight into the practice of this international landform artist, philosopher, collaborator and architect. This show will complement the existing Charles Jencks landform Cells of Life which is the gateway into Jupiter Artland and after five years in the making will reach completion this summer.

 

A long held ambition has been to show studio works often used by the artist as visual prompts or sketches that inform his landform practice. Featuring landform schemes, sculpture and maquettes, the genesis of so many of his huge landforms is revealed. Often quirky, humorous and made from found objects these sculptural sketches engage the viewer and show Jencks’ serious research into the rocks which inspire so much of his work and their natural affective qualities: their striking animal presence, natural metaphors, optical effects and metaphysics.

 

Jupiter Artland is a unique, award winning sculpture garden, 12 miles outside Edinburgh and houses the private collection of Nicky and Robert Wilson. The permanent site specific work on display in the peaceful woodland and meadows of this Jacobean house is by leading contemporary sculptors including Nathan Coley, Alec Finlay, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Laura Ford, Andy Goldsworthy, Anthony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Jim Lambie, Peter Liversidge, Cornelia Parker, Marc Quinn and Shane Waltener.
