Modern Art Oxford is working with artists brook & black to grow an architectural sculpture on Rose Hill Allotment. The eco-edible-art project saw the launch of Plot 16: The Fermenting Room in December 2010 and the production of a limited edition green hop beer, currently on sale in Modern Art Oxford’s Café and Shop. Phase Two of the residency sees the installation of a framework for the sculpture that follows the architectural outline of Modern Art Oxford, a building that itself was once a brewery .
‘The plants will climb over the 25ft high x 30ft long, temporary metal sculpture. As the months progress, definitions, edges and borders will become confused, destabilised by the unpredictable energy of plant growth‘ brook & black.
Visit Plot 16 to see the sculpture as it becomes overgrown with hops. The artists will be at the allotment to welcome visitors on the following Sundays between 2pm and 4pm: 8 May, 5 June and 3 July. nb. the allotment is only open to visitors when the artists are on site.
