For the Time Being will take up two rooms of the gallery, side-by-side with another exhibition: Plants Portrayed.
Suna and Eileen visited Mottisfont and the wider estate together from autumn 2017 to 2018 to develop their respective practices. Their choice of materials and processes creates a narrative about time, place and the beauty of nature within the cycle of decay and renewal.
For Eileen the project at Mottisfont brought a new dimension to her practice, allowing her work to develop, quite literally, over a long period. She used different ways to capture photographic images without a camera as both a scientific and poetic experience. Suna spent her time closely engaged with the grounds of Mottisfont, responding to the relationship between the estate and the natural world. Her contemplative ceramic pieces are both responsive to the specific time and place as well as reflective of wider environmental concerns.
