Sara Barker: Separation in the Evening
(A Celestial Blossom Before The Yellow House) 2015
At the heart of this developing landscape is the inexplicable force that connects the unconscious speech of the landscape with the literate vision of artists. This powerful pull has inspired artists to notice small things that the casual viewer may not, but often great work is based upon the study of maps, research of papers, stories, anecdotes – the ephemeral legends that much Jupiter such a rich and vital place – but, most importantly, from listening to the landscape.
Beyond its status as ‘museum’ or ‘gallery’, Jupiter seeks to be a more vital institution, one in which education and outreach is at the heart of its ethos; our belief is that art, and its transformative power, is for everyone, and our aim is to engage with every single child in Scotland, by offering free school visits throughout the year.
