Bluecoat is delighted to be working with artist Serena Korda and Trust New Art, the National Trust’s programme connecting people to places through contemporary art.
Serena Korda works across performance, sound and sculpture to find and highlight ritual in the everyday, which is developed through encounters, conversations and the researching of abandoned histories.
Set in Speke Hall’s ancient woodlands and grounds, The Bell Tree draws on the hall’s hidden history. Korda reconsiders aspects of communion and tradition, including underexplored feminist narratives or ‘herstories’ and alternative histories of folklore and witchcraft. The public commission is at Speke Hall, with a smaller element installed in Bluecoat's garden.
Speke Hall is free to visit with a National Trust Membership.

Jan 31, 2019 to 12:00am talk/event
