Norwich Art Path
A guided walk from Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery to Sainsbury Centre. Audiences will experience provocations and interventions specially commissioned from artists along the route of a proposed art path connecting University of East Anglia with the city centre.
The Norwich Art Path is an initiative of Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery and Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
Access: This walk goes from Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery to Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. The walk will use public pavements and roads, all of which are wheelchair accessible. The route can be adjusted to reflect any specific mobility needs.
Norwich Castle Site Response - Nicola Turner
Turner investigates the dissolution of boundaries, in-betweenness, and the continuous exchange of ecosystems. Using ‘dead’ reclaimed material embedded with histories including wool, a material once traded in the castle grounds, Turner will respond to the castle site and create a site-specific installation.
questions answered - Les Bicknell
In these unsettled times we would all like some answers. On the walk, using a treasure map you will find some answers to some questions. X marks the spot.
Open Doors – Dougie Evans
Open Doors is a captivating and meditative audio guided experience, with original music, writing and sound design by Dougie Evans. The walk uses spatial audio sounds to transport you through a fictional and real journey of the park. So bring your headphones and step through open doors into your imagination.
Triangulate - Daisy Henwood
Triangulate is a series of poems about the Unthank Road area. Using community voices, local history, and personal experience, Daisy tries to find out what it means and has meant to be part of Norwich’s “golden triangle.” Triangulate incorporates themes of place, belonging, and ownership to explore how we connect to our city.
The Micro City - Liz McGowan
An invitation to lean in and explore the fine detail and pattern of a small piece of the city – a place that is not necessarily deemed special in any way, but which has (as all places do) hidden surprises, if you know how to look.
Wishful Thinking - Maddie Exton
Maddie will be installing a Coin Tree at UEA campus, marking the site of the pilgrimage. Interested in how folklore and mystery can appear in the everyday, she wants to invite a space for dreaming into our lives. Coin trees are noted for their wish-granting fame, and passer-by’s are invited to add their wishes to the sculpture.
