Belsay Hall Castle and Gardens
Newcastle upon Tyne, ,
UK United Kingdom
Continuing the programme of dramatic, spectacular exhibitions at Belsay Hall Castle and Gardens, Picture House sees the magnificent empty and austere nineteenth century Hall transformed by film directors, sound and music producers, performers, artists and fashion designers. Picture House – Film, Art and Design at Belsay which opens on May 5th 2007 and continues through the month has been developed over a period of three years.
Commissioned artists such as Viktor and Rolf, Mercury prize winner antony (frontman of Antony and the Johnsons) and Tilda Swinton and John Byrne have all re-invented the rooms to breathe life into its empty interior. From silver plated ballgowns to eerie contraptions, from twisted forests to mournful song, this time round Belsay will be full of ghosts, voice and visual magnificence.
The artists are –
Kandis Cook and Nicholas Till (Post Operative Productions)
Imogen Cloet and Jacob Polley
Victor and Rolf
United Visual Artists (UVA)
Opera North Productions/Tim Hopkins, Antony with William Basinski
Mike Figgis and Boudicca
Geraldine Pilgrim (corridor productions)
Aether architects – Adam Somlai-Fischer and Bengt Sjolen.
