Fair & Foul

Fair & Foul by Jill Rock


An installation of works on the theme Ruskin and the Grotesque by Jill Rock. Jill is an artist working in in performance, mixed-media and installation with a keen interest in Ruskin and Schwitters. Working within the conceptual template of Ruskin's analysis of the relevance of the Gothic in his own time, Jill's installation presents a contemporary response to the Gothic as it speaks to us now. On display in the Blue Gallery. Admission is included in house ticket.

During half-term week on 14th, 15th & 16th February, Jill will be holding drop-in workshops (during opening hours) in the Loft. The workshops will be an exploration of the Grotesque in nature, working with woodland fragments from Brantwood's gardens - an opportunity for visitors of all ages to engage with monsters, the absurd and the bizarre. Included in house or garden ticket.
