Three new temporary artworks in Waddington, inspired by the Tennyson Research Centre, Lincoln.





Three large scale temporary public artworks in Waddington inspired by the Tennyson Research Centre. Artists Andrew Bracey, Danica Maier and Sarah Bennett are currently undertaking a 3 year residency at the Tennyson Research Centre in Lincoln. The residency forms part of the long-term research project ‘Bummock: New Artistic Responses to Unseen Parts of the Archive’. The Bummock is the large part of an iceberg hidden beneath the surface of the sea. The project focuses on the unseen or lesser known parts of the archive (i.e. the ‘bummock’) as catalysts for the creation of new artworks. Housed within the Tennyson Research Centre is a wealth of information and material about Alfred Tennyson, alongside intriguing content concerning his wider family. These less well-known figures have been the focus for these three new artworks by the artists.

An artist walk is taking place on Sat 27 July, 1-3pm as part of NK Walking Festival.
