INTERVENTIONS: Ann Carrington
June 29, 2024 - October 27, 2024

British artist Ann Carrington is well-known for working with discarded and found objects to create ornate sculptures and works of art. Her eccentric and elegant pieces breathe new life into otherwise mundane items such as knives, spoons, buttons, cans, and coins by unraveling their associations and assigning new meaning as sculpture. Inspired by the gardens at Cheekwood and the Cheek family, Carrington’s installation will include 33 works throughout the period rooms. Her work has recently been exhibited at the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny as part of the Flowers Forever exhibition, as well as at Kunsthalle Munich, one of Germany’s most prestigious exhibition houses.

Now in its third year, INTERVENTIONS is an arts initiative to activate the historic period rooms. The series invites renowned artists from around the globe to imagine and implement a connection between their contemporary work and the Cheekwood Mansion.
