Westonbirt International Festival of the Garden 2004

(2004) Westonbirt International Festival of the Garden 2004

Record type: Art Design Item


Westonbirt Arboretum enjoys a unique role as a focus for conservation and research. It is in this environment that Claire Barber was commissioned to research, explore and respond to the arboretums collections and environment. The main aims of the commission brief was to develop a wider appreciation of the arts within the forest/rural context and to create an interesting and challenging work that could stimulate debate and reconsideration of the collection at Westonbirt. Claire Barber in her installaiton 'Stepping Lightly on 88 Pillows' makes us aware that our single intervention, however small, on the rural environment can be significant. The work has been conceived to be located by a regularly-used pathway through the Arboretum, not on the pathway but alongside it, as a reminder of the difference between the human areas of the Arboretum and the trees' own environment.
