Richard Long at Houghton Hall on The Art Channel

Working for almost fifty years in natural landscapes and the materials found within them, Richard Long has made a series of site specific sculptures for the garden and park of Houghton Hall in Norfolk in an exhibition called ‘Earth Sky’. In this film Grace and Joshua visit the exhibition to find out how Long builds his sculptures and how they respond to this historic house and garden. In these directly honest and simple sculptures Long addresses ideas of history, time, geology and ecology.

Do Ho Suh at Victoria Miro on The Art Channel

From architectural installations to works on paper, Do Ho Suh explores memory, travel and identity in an exhibition titled ‘Passage/s’. Using brightly coloured and transparent polyester mesh hung on steel frames, Do Ho Suh erects a series of linking architectural ‘hubs’ which resemble disregarded domestic spaces like hallways and entrances. He is also showing new ‘drawings’ produced by melting gelatine models into absorbent paper.
