The 2011 exhibition in the Burghley House Sculpture Garden features the sculptures of Julian Wild.
Incomplete Systems is Wild’s first major solo exhibition at an outdoor venue. Highlights of the exhibition, set in the lush gardens of Capability Brown, include a large permanent commission in stainless steel tubing, alongside giant spheres constructed from red hula hoops that will float around the lake.
Further connections between site and materials will derive from Julian’s recycling of agricultural scrap from several of Burghley’s tied farms, which the sculptor will coagulate into a singular form and then galvanise. On 16th July, Julian Wild will be running his project Making the Connection in the Great Hall between 11am and 4pm. Constructed from plastic plumbing pipe, everybody is welcome to add their part to this large sculptural installation as it grows through the beautiful interior of The Great Hall at Burghley House. At 5pm the artist will be giving an introduction to the exhibition with the curator, Michael Shaw.
