Tiptoe through one of London’s most picturesque cemeteries, looking out for works of art. From this weekend the Curious art trail can be explored in West Norwood Cemetery. 21 artists will position site-responsive works around the burial ground, one of London’s ‘Magnificent Seven’. The installations use various media, including ceramics, sound, textiles, photography and even poetry, and are curated by Jane Millar. To give you a flavour, we’ve appended a few shots from last year’s trail, which included a bus stop in the middle of a plot, a coffin-shaped rocking horse and ghostly outlines of graves. What sepulchral curiosities can we expect this year? We’re dying to find out.
The trail opens this Saturday (22 June) and will remain in place until 28 July, and watch out for events on 6, 7 and 21 July, and the private view (all welcome) on 21 June, 6-9pm. Entrance is free.
