9.45am – 10.45am
Title: Art world experiences. Internationally renowned sculptor David Nash OBE, RA in conversation with curator, critic, and author John K Grande. Trees, wood, and the natural environment are central to Nash’s work, many of his site-specific works including Ash Dome (1977), Barnsley Lump (1981) and the elusive Wooden Boulder are reflective of his relationship with the land, environment, and ecology. Nash devises works that develop with age, either growing, naturally revealing themselves or gradually returning their constituent elements.
