Grizedale Residency

Exhibition of new work by Ben Allan and Karolin Schwab


Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre, Grizedale, Hawkshead, Cumbria LA22 0QJ

Thanks to the Brian Mercer Charitable Trust, this year we launched our new Grizedale residency in partnership with Grizedale Forest.

This intensive six week long residency aimed to foster experimentation and innovation in response to the natural environment. Two sculptors - a Society member and an early-career sculptor based in the North West - were selected to work side by side, enabling them to explore, test and develop new ideas and processes. The key aim of this residency was to encourage a shared verbal and visual dialogue between the two artists and ultimately inspire and further the language of their individual practice.

Throughout the residency each artist had access to a studio in the heart of the forest and the new work will be on display in this exhibition at Grizedale Forest.
