Middleton Hall, centre:mk
A special commission by centre:mk in collaboration with IF: Milton Keynes International Festival
Artist Rebecca Louise Law is known for creating immersive installations with natural materials. Preserved flowers – individually sewn and suspended – have become the signature of her most recognised works across the globe, with visitors invited to navigate through them.
The Place Between is a vast natural installation – a place for contemplation and an opportunity to consider the beauty and fragility of our natural environment.
Over the past three weeks, this spectacular garden of hanging flowers and plant materials has been created in Middleton Hall, using Rebecca’s own collection of dried flowers as well as donations from the local community. Hundreds of people have taken part in daily flower-garland making sessions and these have been incorporated into the final artwork.
The installation has inspired specially created immersive soundscapes by sound-artist Jason Singh. Using sensors attached to a wide range of plants and trees from across Milton Keynes, Jason has captured biodata to reveal their inner songs. To listen to these beautiful soundscapes
as you navigate your way through The Place Between, pick up a set of headphones from our collection point as you enter the installation.
Monday to Wednesday mornings are likely to be quieter times to visit.
