Four striking and surprising new artworks will emerge into the landscape at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal this spring, recreating the ‘lost follies’ of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Artist Anya Gallaccio at Lindisfarne Castle

Anya Gallaccio at Lindisfarne Castle, Northumberland  

As Lindisfarne Castle re-opens after being closed for 18 months for vital conservation work, world renowned artist Anya Gallaccio will be taking over the space and creating a rural landscape of colour inside. From 5 May, Anya will fill the castle with dyed blankets, flowers and moss, taking inspiration from Gertrude Jekyll's walled garden in the grounds to bring the outside in.
