Sep 8, 2018 - Jul 28, 2019
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.

SERENA KORDA: UNDER THE ROSE
Mar 13 - Jul 28, 2019
Under the Rose is a new sound installation made for Speke Hall’s courtyard, inspired by the acoustics of secrecy.

THE ICKNIELD WAY PROJECT
Feb 8 - May 5, 2019
The Icknield Way is considered to be one of the oldest roads in Great Britain, tracing a path across the chalk uplands from Dorset to Norfolk. Along this route it crosses fields in Ickleford before passing through the residential and industrial areas of Letchworth. The Icknield Way Project was developed by artist Karen Picton to showcase works that embody the physical nature of this ancient roadway as it becomes progressively more unknown and lost amongst the materials of the world’s first garden city.

HAYV KAHRAMAN : DISPLACED CHOREOGRAPHIES
Feb 9 - Jun 2, 2019
Hayv Kahraman’s solo exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion will be the artist’s first in a UK public gallery. Her work explores her experience of living between Western and Middle Eastern cultures: having fled Iraq with her family aged 11 during the first Gulf War as part of the Kurdish mass exodus, the artist migrated to Europe and now lives in the USA. A female figure recurs in her work, representing shared histories between women – particularly women of colour – and building on personal histories of migration.
