The Jerwood Encounters Terra exhibition is currently on tour at Grizedale Forest, following it’s showing at JVA at Jerwood Space in November 2011. Terra is curated by Haley Skipper and Anthony Mottershead of the Forestry Commission England and brings together five artists who are considering the relationship between their practice and the environment outside of the white–walled gallery space. These artists include: Jonathan Anderson, Edwina fitzPatrick, Luke Jerram, Anne-Mie Melis and Owl Project. In its new home at Grizedale Forest artist Melissa Hinkin has been exploring and responding to each of the exhibits through sculptural text works which will be uploaded to the Grizedale Forest Sculpture website each week. Find her first piece on the Owl Project; Sound Lathe & 9v Sound System here: http://www.grizedalesculpture.org/index.php/current-projects/42-artist-responds-to-terra-at-grizedale-forest
