ALICE is a Dover District Council commission as part of Art in the park: Kearsney interpreted an ACE funded project in Kearsney Abbey Gardens, Kent. The circular, interactive sculpture is located on top of a slope that was once the Old Open Air Theatre.The title refers to Edward Barlow’s wife, Alice Barlow (1860-1930) but also to Alice in Wonderland. Alice is a work of art that acts as a social and sensory place, a bench sculpture for the people in the park.

Tischler Wood’s Bird Home installation was part of the Wild New Territories exhibition, curated by Kathy Kenny and Ron den Daas. Each bird home is individually made from precious timber, rescued from a skip of one of Britain’s best-known art schools and embellished with gold leaf or camouflage pattern. Tischlerwood sees her installation as having both a financial and an ecological context.
