APP034 - Time in the Ice House - Norton Priory Museum and Gardens

An experimental ice sculpture will go on display at Norton Priory Museum and Gardens from 23 August celebrating its monastic past.

The museum’s Georgian Ice House will be home to a large-scale, experimental ice bell that, as it melts, will release objects and play sounds. The installation references the Liturgy of the Hours, a daily cycle of communal prayer that would have been observed by monks at the Priory.

Created by artist David Appleyard, Time in the Ice House is part of Meeting Point2, a year-long project led by contemporary art agency Arts&Heritage that sees artists partner with museums in Yorkshire, the North West and the North East to produce new artworks inspired by the museums and their collections.

DA COMMISSIONED TO WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NORTHERN MUSEUMS AS PART OF ARTS AND HERITAGE MEETINGPOINT2

Photograph courtesy of HH Smith David Appleyard is one of ten artists to have been selected to work in partnership with museums in the North of England, each creating a new piece of work in response to the museum and its collections. Timandra Nichols, Director at Arts&Heritage, which initiated and is leading the project, said: “The artists each submitted proposals detailing how they would respond to the museums – the site and their collections. The venues we’re working with are varied and the artists responded with ideas which were thoughtful, exciting, and really took inspiration from some of the amazing museum buildings and collections.  “The resulting works, when they are revealed later in the year, will not only be astounding pieces in their own right, but will also prompt audiences to think about the museums where the works are sited in a very different way.” The Meeting Point2 project, which is funded through the Arts Council England’s Resilience Fund, aims to equip museums with the knowledge and skills to commission work from artists again in the future, as well as presenting new works in unexpected places.  The selected artists are known for work ranging from fusions of sculpture and sound art, to textile works and film.  Sheffield-based artist David Appleyard, who will be working in partnership with Norton Priory Museum, said: “There is something very special about Norton Priory Museum. My research visits left me literally spellbound so I’m absolutely delighted to be involved in their MeetingPoint2 project. The project offers a rare opportunity to work with a very dedicated team in a place steeped in 900 years of history.”
