Prospect Refuge Hazard 2 – Hestercombe Gallery, Taunton (July 14th – October 28th 2018)

This exhibition presents a new and recent body of work by internationally acclaimed artist Helen Sear, whose practice can be characterised by her exploration of the crossover between photography and fine art and her focus on the co-existence of the human, animal and natural worlds. Consisting of works made since 2015 it is her most ambitious exhibition in the UK to date.

The Hestercombe Gallery is open daily 11am – 5pm.

DISRUPTED VIEWS – A Seminar with Helen Sear, Gareth Evans and Lauren Châtel
Tuesday 2nd October 2018, 2-5pm

Referring to the title of Helen Sear’s current exhibition in Hestercombe Gallery, Prospect Refuge Hazard 2, and drawing on the theory posited by Jay Appleton in his 1975 book ‘The Experience of Landscape’, this seminar will consider contemporary links between beauty and survival, in the context of the works in the exhibition, the history of landscape gardens and more broadly our human relationships with the surrounding environment.

Helen Sear will be joined by Gareth Evans, writer, editor, film and event producer. Gareth is the curator of Whitechapel Gallery’s Adjunct Moving Image and, amongst many other things, has co-curated Whitstable Biennale, Porto’s Forum of the Future and Flipside Festival. The French academic Dr. Laurent Châtel will also be contributing to the seminar. Professor of British Art, Culture and Visual Studies at Lille University, Laurent specialises in 18th century English landscape gardens.

Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating afternoon of conversation. There will also be an opportunity to view Helen’s exhibition in Hestercombe Gallery.



Prospect Refuge Hazard 2 continues until October 28th 2018
