Sculpture does not need shelter, either intellectual or physical, and can stand in the elements, encouraging dialogue between human time, the time of the seasons and the time of geology.
Jupiter Artland is home to a growing collection of outdoor sculpture, powered by an annual commissioning programme that sees artists invited to create their best work in response to, and in dialogue with, landscape. Unrivalled internationally, this unique programme has resulted in landmark permanent artworks by luminaires including Charles Jencks, Phyllida Barlow, Christian Boltanski, Helen Chadwick, Nathan Coley, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Anya Gallaccio, Andy Goldsworthy, Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Tania Kovats, Cornelia Parker and Joana Vasconcelos, all of which are permanently on view to the public during open season. A living collection, Jupiter has been described as ‘an open-air laboratory; a place where new things come into dialogue with things that already exist, allowing them to grow in people’s imaginations’2. Nurtured by founders Nicky and Robert Wilson, Learning at Jupiter takes inspiration from the art and nature, and takes place year-round offering free visits and hands-on workshops.
