Close Distance @ Wollaton Hall
Mar 8 – May 1 all-day

Close Distance

Created for the magnificent rooftop Prospect Room at Wollaton Hall, with its views across the surrounding park and city beyond, this new commission offers visitors a unique experience of an area of the house rarely visited by the public.

Artists Caroline Broadhead, Nic Sandiland and Angela Woodhouse have taken inspiration from the building’s history and inhabitants, exploring such details as 17th century embroidered costume belonging to the Middleton family who once lived in the Hall, and the doors that separated the kitchens and servants’ quarters from the family rooms upstairs. Sandiland and Woodhouse have worked with image, sound, and movement to create a series of intimate film works that are integrated with Broadhead’s reinvented found objects. All these elements find synergy in this atmospheric installation.

To visit Close Distance, please book on to one of the special ‘Talk and View’ events, taking place every Wednesday and Saturday between 8 March and 1 May. Each ‘Talk and View’ will be conducted by a Nottingham-based artist or performer, lasting approximately 45 minutes, including time to view the work. Tickets can be booked online or brought on site on the day of your visit:
