Treewilder – Walking Tour

A walking tour of Treewilder – an exhibition of site-responsive interventions, sculptures and video work set in Barnwell Country Park aiming to encourage visitors to explore the woodland space throughout autumn and winter.

Led by exhibition guest curator Angela Kingston in conversation with Fermynwoods Director James Steventon, discover insights about the exhibition works and featured artists Denise de Cordova, Delaine Le Bas, Kim L Pace, Jennet Thomas, Danny Treacy, and Johannes Zits.

As Angela described the exhibition as “an experience that belongs to everyone”, members of the audience were encouraged to share their own thoughts and observations in an informal celebration event.

Angela Kingston is a curator and writer whose previous group exhibitions include 3am, The First Humans, Is this planet earth? and Underwater, which took place at the Bluecoat (Liverpool), Chapter (Cardiff), The New Art Gallery (Walsall), Towner (Eastbourne), and many other galleries throughout the UK. She is interested in fantasy literature, the natural sciences and the sub-conscious.

Funded by Arts Council England as part of Xylophobia, Fermynwoods Contemporary Art’s two-year programme from 2022-2024. Named from the fear of wooden objects or forests, Xylophobia addresses issues of place and belonging, which go to the heart of community feelings of exclusion from both the art world and woodland space. With special thanks to Barnwell Country Park Rangers and volunteers, the Active Parks Project and North Northants Council.
