French & Mottershead

A love poem to the forest and body

Woodland

Cushioned by soil and surrounded by leaf litter and new growth, Woodland by artist duo French & Mottershead is a meditative and deeply affecting audio work that creates a self-portrait of the body after death. Using spoken narrative with insights from forensic anthropologists and ecologists, Woodland is a gentle confrontation of mortality and an invitation to imagine our body’s return to the earth over an epic length of time.

Friday 26th– Monday 29th May, 10:30am – 4:30pm
Special event: Saturday 27th May with an artist talk at 7pm
The Old Station, Tintern, nr Chepstow, Monmouthshire, NP16 7NX
