2018 marks 70 years since the death of Alexandrina Peckover, the sale of the contents of the Peckover House and the property coming under the ownership of the National Trust. To mark this occasion, curators at Peckover House and Garden have worked with Cambridge-based artists Sarah Evans and David Kefford, who are known as Aid & Abet, on a a special project that will see the house reinterpreted for this season.
Aid & Abet are making an immersive installation artwork for the Drawing Room at Peckover House; an expanded cabinet of curiosity filled with both collectable curios and ordinary domestic objects that reflects three themes; victorian collecting, modern surrealist art and contemporary visual art. Through collage and photography the objects will be transformed into a series of new artworks that will be layered amongst objects and housed in a bespoke display structure that will weave through the room and allow the work to be viewed from multiple directions.
Transition in Time is supported by Trust New Art, EAAF and the Arts Council.
