This spring, the grounds of historic Hatfield House
in Hertfordshire will host an exhibition of sculpture by six Royal Academicians.
Curated by sculptor Bill Woodrow RA, the exhibition is a joint venture between Hatfield and the Royal Academy and is the latest in a series of sculptural exhibitions at the house. It will feature the work of Woodrow along with Ann Christopher, Michael Craig-Martin, Richard Deacon, Gary Hume and Alison Wilding.
Hatfield, a prime example of Jacobean architecture, has been in the Cecil Family for over 400 years. It is home to Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, the 7th Marquess of Salisbury and his wife. The magnificent gardens date from the early 17th century and are currently maintained by Lady Salisbury and her team of gardeners.
In the video above, we go behind the scenes with the Royal Academicians as they visit Hatfield in preparation for the installation of the sculptures.
