Form of Intrigue

Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire
2011
Flanders Red willow
For Sotheby’s exhibition, ‘Materials Worlds’.

‘Material Worlds’ was a Sotheby’s exhibition curated by Janice Blackburn that featured the works of eleven artists, including Tord Boontje, Amanda Levete, David Adjaye and Ingo Maurer.  Form of Intrigue was created especially for this exhibition.

The quote below by Janice Blackburn is an extract taken from the Sotheby’s exhibition catalogue:

“It has been a priviledge to curate an exhibition within this glorious historic setting and to collate a group of works that are as rich in materials and texture as the luscious landscape itself. A perfect example is Laura Ellen Bacon’s installation, Form of Intrigue, a site-specific commission which evokes the nursery tale of Rapunzel, as twigs, like hair, cascade down the side of the castle ruin.” Janice Blackburn
