Lydney Park Estate
Rupert Bathurst and Roy Voss
2013
Host Productions worked with Lydney Park Estate to support them to develop an artist residency programme based in The Forest of Dean. The development work led to the Estate establishing a residency partnering with Matts Gallery, London involving internationally renowned artists.

The premise for the residency programme was to draw on the Estate’s varied assets including: greenhouses, ancient roman remains, the grain barns, the woods and meadows and Bathurst pools. The environment provides artists with opportunities to research and develop art projects in the Gloucestershire area and fosters collaboration, exchange and dialogue in the arts.

The first residency season included the following artists: Patrick Goddard, Sally O’Reilly and Alison Turnbull. The artists stayed at the Estate and shared in a community of interaction, conceptual development and production of work, including painting, film, performance, sculpture and installation.

The residency was funded by Arts Council England and Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
