PREVIEW & ARTISTS SUPPER: Tessa Campbell Fraser

Friday 4 October, from 6pm

 

Join us for the opening night of the exhibition ‘Whales’ by Tessa Campbell Fraser.

The exhibition forms part of the Active Environmentalism programming at Messums Org which is founded on the principle that action begins with knowledge. British sculptor and climate change advocate, Tessa Campbell Fraser aims to unravel the interspecies communications between man and animal that are currently at the forefront of scientific research. Three monumental (5.2m, 4.6m and 3m respectively) sculptures of sperm whales will hang from the roof of the tithe barn. The open timbers and roofbeams of the barn are reminiscent of an upturned boat, carrying subliminal associations with the industrial scale whaling which reduced sperm whale numbers to critical levels in the 19th century, when their waxy spermaceti oil famously oiled the wheels of the Industrial Revolution. The sculptures offer a response to the environment whereby the viewer becomes immersed into an imaginative world of the whale whilst the surroundings reflect man’s increasing ecological impact on the world’s climate.

Messum’s Restaurant is open for an artists supper. Our artist suppers are relaxed, convivial events with sharing dishes served on a long table and a chance to meet and chat with like-minded people. We offer a fixed menu (vegetarian option) designed and created on site by our Messum’s Restaurant team. We will send you a copy of the confirmed menu before the event. In the meantime, if you have any questions contact our Events Manager on oliver@messums.org
