ARTIST ROOMS Richard Long 'Being in the Moment' marks the first collaboration between THG and ARTIST ROOMS to bring the work of the renowned British sculptor and land artist, Richard Long, to East Devon. For more than 50 years, Richard Long has been at the forefront of conceptual art working beyond the confines of traditional material and questioning how we view the relationship between landscapes and art. His investigations into nature, using mediums such as walking, and working with found materials such as mud, earth and slate, remain as relevant today as they ever were.
The exhibition features work that spans 40 years of Long’s career from 1966 to 2006, starting with early experiments in the South West. Here began a life-long investigation into landscape as both space and material, taking Long to remote locations across the world. From photography, maps and texts, to mark making and sculpture, this exhibition captures Long’s personal, way of being with nature and invites a moment of reflection on our own relationship with landscape and the natural world.
