Judy Pfaff @ Messums, Wiltshire
23 September 2017 - 26 November 2017
Set in a 13th Century Barn, the largest of its type in the country, the 140-foot long sculptural installation is an ode to the creative strength of a landscape that inspired Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral and the ancient dwellings of England. Made of wood, chalk, stones, root balls from 300-year-old Sycamore trees and found modern materials it is a celebration of the creative vitality of this area of Wiltshire best known as the Cranborne Chase. Judy Pfaff, now 71, is a pioneering American installation artist who describes her work as ‘painting in space’ was awarded the MacArthur Fellowship – one of the most prestigious accolades for art in the US – combining sculpting, painting and printmaking to make immersive installations. The exhibition, which also features paintings and drawings, is the first Pfaff has held in the UK.
