Weather Station is a mobile pavilion for the collection of images, objects and ideas. An artist-led response to flooding and extreme weather, exploring the changing relationship we have with landscape and the natural world.
Cumulative rather than collaborative, the structure passes from one artist to the next, gathering traces of its journey through the streets, fields and rivers of South West England.
Weather Station (Part I) brings together new and existing work by OSR Projects associates Jethro Brice and Simon Lee Dicker alongside work by Alexander Stevenson (selected by Hestercombe Gallery Curator Tim Martin). The exhibition will also include the Weather Station structure and documentation of the journey it has taken so far.
Weather Station (Part II) will take place throughout the South West UK. Our regional partners include B-Side (Dorset), Backlane West (Cornwall), Exeter Phoenix (Devon), Hand in Glove (Bristol), Plymouth Art Centre (Devon), and Stair/Slide/Space (Hampshire). Partners will be selecting artists to host the weather station and take part in a series of exhibitions and events that will take place throughout Summer 2016.
