Sculpture Exhibition 2019 – a 20th Anniversary Celebration of Art

Towering kinetic wind art and mythological figures are transforming the historic garden into a stunning outdoor gallery for a special 20th anniversary exhibition.

Opened on 9th May by award-winning designer and TV gardener, Juliet Sargeant, the carefully selected sculptures are placed throughout the 17-acre formal Garden, working in harmony with the renowned horticultural collection that has put Borde Hill on the map. Including over 100 pieces, the diverse display of figurative and abstract works highlight fresh new talent, with some familiar names returning to be part of this special celebration of art.

Will Carr’s kinetic wind sculpture ‘Transfiguration’ captivates viewers as it twists and turns in the breeze in front of the Elizabethan Mansion. Wandering further into the garden ‘rooms’, visitors encounter ‘Icarus I’ by Nicola Godden, a striking winged figure commissioned for the London 2012 Olympic Village. The mythological theme continues with ‘Narcissus’ by Teresa Wells, a figurative bronze inspired by the boy who fell in love with his own reflection.

Exploring the Garden’s hidden spaces, visitors will stumble across exquisite stone carvings, alongside works in resin, glass and ceramic.

Smaller pieces are exhibited inside the Glasshouse and Green Tree Gallery, encouraging visitors to explore every nook and cranny of the historic garden and grounds. All works are on sale, with something to suit every taste and pocket.

Admission included in standard entry price.
