Sculpture exhibition by award-winning London artist Victoria Rance conjures up the lost creatures, spirits and fairies of Blackheath.The animal species recorded included Natterjack toads, hares, common lizards, bats, quail, ring ouzel and nightingales. Today the bats are the only regular inhabitants on that list.
‘Otherworld’ an exhibition by artist Victoria Rance brings these long-lost creatures back to the heath for a mystical sculpture exhibition that combines folklore, fairies, animal spirts and environmental history. The works look at the connections between humans, animals and nature through tiny detailed pewter characters set in tableaux scenes.
Responding to the location and the time of the mad March hare, Rance is also showing a new series of talismanic sculptures based on The Three Hares, an ancient archetypal symbol. She sees the motif as a way of honouring our precious declining wildlife, as well as being a helpful counter to current world conflict. She writes: “For Otherworld I have discovered (in my dreams and imagination) some creatures whose job it is to haunt and protect the Heath through fear or favour.”
