Trust New Art - 'Gathering' by Hilary Jack
For Gathering, over a thousand used tennis balls become the subject of a short film and installation by Hilary Jack in the Long Gallery at Little Moreton Hall.
Gathering focuses on the topography of The Long Gallery while referencing the passing of time, and simultaneously revealing the historic use of the space.
