I had a brief mention in the Big Issue Magazine recently about the ‘Stream‘ exhibition.
John Elliott has transformed the Wagon gallery at Tiverton Museum with Stream, an installation of more than 200 multicoloured butterflies dancing in swirls and eddies bewteen the wooden carts and hay wains, as the water onec flowed past Constable’s. It is inspired by the amazing huge butterflies he encountered on a trip through the Bolivian Rainforest, thier natural beauty replicated in plastic and steel against the organic wood of the ancient farmingmachinery, reminding us of our uneasy realtionship with nature.
