New artwork to be installed along the Forest of Dean’s Sculpture TrailPosted on 19th January 2016
The Forest of Dean’s famous Sculpture Trail is going to be home to two new additions of artwork this year.
After saying goodbye to the iconic ‘giant’s chair’ last year, the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust and the Forestry Commission will first be welcoming a solar-powered light sculpture by Andrea Roe in two months’ time.
The motion-triggered piece is inspired by hidden networks of fungi that exist in the ground next to the path that many people take whilst exploring the natural beauty of the Forest of Dean.
The second piece will be arriving in September, created by Germany-based Romanian artist Pomona Zipser, and the organisers are sure that the arrival will boost the trail’s international profile.
Sitting alongside the existing works by Henry Castle and Onya McCausland, all of the sculptures offer new ways of interacting with the landscape that defines them.
With Easter and summer holiday bookings for holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean already being taken, the sculptures will be attracting families and young children from all over the country.
