In Another Light

1 November 2014 - 21 March 2015

During the coming dark months, Meadow Arts and National Trust present In Another Light, a contemporary art programme incorporating live events and exhibited artworks at Croft Castle, revealing a hidden dimension to familiar perceptions of this ancient place.

In Another Light presents a rare opportunity to celebrate and engage with darkness, following the lunar calendar and pagan festivals, as man has done through the ages at this highly meaningful site.

Even in the cold light of day, Croft Castle and the landscape it sits in are mesmerising: its uncommonly strong sense of time and spirit of place is captivating. When night falls and familiar landmarks recede, Croft reveals further hidden depths.

Meadow Arts and the National Trust have commissioned new works by the talented young sculptor David Ogle. With these immersive light works, Ogle looks at materiality and temporality in the context of his sculptural practice.

A series of artworks by David Ogle, Mark Richards and Rebecca Farkas, exploring light as a medium, are sited in the castle grounds and the church to be viewed during the dark hours on selected dates.

Croft is open for special weekend evening live art and performance events at selected times, offering a rare chance to visit the castle 'out of hours' and to see the In Another Light exhibition. (Visit National Trust for opening times and prices.)
