About

Michael Sanders has created a new work for Orchard Gallery at Gunby Hall and Gardens. The work has evolved from his experience as a long-term residential tenant on the Gunby Estate. Working with National Trust volunteers on archival research, and by capturing the portraits and memories of other current tenants, Michael has created a contemporary Domesday for Gunby, offering a parallel story to that told in the Hall.

Central to the exhibition will be a series of metal objects forming a ‘model village’, representing some of the properties of the wider estate and offering an alternative perspective on Gunby Estate and its story. The model will form part of an installation containing Michael’s observational drawings; photographs of current tenants; segments of aural testimony and genealogical charts mapping available information on past residents. Together they will surround the visitor in a visualisation of an unmapped history.

The exhibition has been developed in partnership with curatorial collective, CommonAs (www.commonas.org.uk), and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
