Leeds making its mark in the landscape

Trudi Entwistle, Leverhulme Artist in Residence with water@leeds, is helping to put Leeds research on the map as part of the Yorkshire Festival 2014’s ‘Fields of Vision’ project.

Fields of Vision is a land-art project stretching across the south Pennine fields from Blubberhouses to Haworth, with installations linked by the theme of water and its role in our green spaces.  Working with Pennine Prospects, Trudi has created Ripples on the banks of the Lower Laithe Reservoir, Stanbury, near Haworth.  Information displayed at the site explains the work was inspired by Trudi’s water@leeds residency here at Leeds.

All the Fields of Vision installations can be appreciated from the ground, but for those wanting a helicopter’s-eye view, they will be seen as part of the aerial coverage of the Tour de France as it passes through the area on the second day of the Grand Départ on Sunday 6 July.

Trudi’s work with water@leeds will also be on display at Gibson Mill, Hardcastle Crags, near Hebden Bridge, from Tuesday 24 June.  Upstream, an exhibition which originally opened at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery on campus last autumn, is travelling to the Mill as part of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and the Yorkshire Festival 2014.  It will remain there until 27 July.
