Temple by North Devon artist Sandy Brown was commissioned for Sotheby’s annual exhibition of monumental sculpture at Chatsworth House, Beyond Limits. The artist calls the temple “a temple for the self”, and has what Brown describes as a graduated entrance. As you approach the building you have to navigate stepping stones and ceremonial arches, and the entrance itself is a circular gap designed to prevent onrush. Brown envisioned the temple as a space for pause and for contemplation. The piece consists of over 5200 hand-painted ceramic tiles, and is inspired by Brown’s travels to Iran and Venice.
This is just one of many inspiring sculptures that will be on display in the Chatsworth House grounds during Beyond Limits from 14 September to 25 October. Guests staying at the Peacock at Rowsley can also enjoy a 50% discount on Chatsworth admission prices during the exhibition. > stay at The Peacock at Rowsley > more about Beyond Limits at Chatsworth House
