A weekend with artists Andrew Mackenzie & Rebecca Appleby


A weekend with artists Andrew Mackenzie & Rebecca Appleby

Marchmont House
18th-20th March.


Hosted by Hugo Burge the event includes a conversation between both artists and curator Susana Beaumont.

'Thresholds' is a weekend in the company of two inspiring artists Andrew Mackenzie & Rebecca Appleby who are united through an exploration of the overlaps and relationships between human made forms (such as architecture) and organic growth (such as trees and roots), decay and transformation. 

Against the backdrop of the climate crisis, themes of how we exist as part of the world, rather than apart from, have never been more relevant.

Both artists have recently completed major commissions for Marchmont House, Rebecca with ‘Fragmented Root’, a bronze sculpture exploring the idea of structure in nature and Andrew with ‘Woodland Structure’, a large scale sculptural installation in a young oak woodland. This event will present an opportunity to engage with the work and the wider contexts, both physically and through discussion and conversation with the artists. Both artists are represented by the &Gallery in Edinburgh.

Limited to just the 20 guests staying in the House - this is an intimate 'house party' offering two nights stay with dinner, breakfast, lunch and drinks included.
This is a rare opportunity to meet the artists and hear them discuss their work, at the same time as allowing you enough time to allow you to unwind in the comfort and splendour of Marchmont House, the recently restored 'Grade A' listed Palladian mansion awarded the Historic Houses/Sotheby' Award in 2018.
