Earthworks: Chris Drury talks about his practice


Renowned for his site-specific natural world sculpture artist Chris Drury will share experiences of his recent practice at a talk as part of the Trust’s current residency #4 Lines in the Landscape funded by Arts Council England.

Chris was born in Sri Lanka and studied at Camberwell College of Arts and University of the Arts London.  Over three decades Chris has made work across the globe responding to remarkable natural places and cultures. 

“My work makes connections between different phenomena in the world, specifically between Nature and Culture, Inner and Outer and Microcosm and Macrocosm. To this end I collaborate with scientists and technicians from a broad spectrum of disciplines and use whatever visual means, technologies and materials best suit the situation.”

Chris will talk about work including a current commission ‘The Wandering’ - formed on the site of the new Perth stadium - and ‘The Ways of Trees, Earth and Water’ - a collaborative commission in Canberra.

 This event is a return visit for Chris who spent time at The Rodd in 2010 as part of our sculpture programme and we are delighted to welcome him back. Professor Rodd Bugg, Emeritus Professor of the University of Arts, London, artist and Trustee of the Sidney Nolan Trust will introduce Chris's talk. 

Tickets £5 on the door, but advance reservation essential - please email with numbers required.
