Past Exhibition: The Roots That Clutch

An exhibition by The Violet Hour

Inspired by a line from T.S. Eliot’s epic poem The Wasteland, The Roots that Clutch brings together the work of four diverse artists, across a range of media.

In its first project at the Garden Museum, The Violet Hour explores the use of the building’s temporary exhibition spaces with clusters of small paintings by Bartholomew Beal, large-scale watercolours of Juliette Losq, digital ruins of Suzanne Moxhay and serpentine stone carvings by sculptor Amelia Kate Sampson.

The show intends to break the rules of the traditional salon hang and present museum visitors with a kind of invasion to be discovered; much like that of the wild plants and weeds that creep into many of the images on display.
