As part of the annual Lewes Artwave festival a large sculpture will be on display in the Castle’s Gun Garden between 11th and 26th September. The piece, by Julian Wild, is called ‘Salvia Corrupted’ and although the intense pink of the steel and bronze sculpture is in contrast to the historic setting, it was inspired by the Salvia or sage plant, which can be found within the garden. The sculpture also features a number of polished bronze ‘fungi’, and the links, in form and process, between these and some of the bronze artefacts within the museum.
Join Julian in the Gun Garden between 3.30pm – 4.30pm when he discusses historic and contemporary techniques for Bronze casting alongside handling Bronze Age artefacts from the Museum collections.
Talk is included in the standard admission.
