ALICE in Kearsney Abbey

May 2018 – ALICE is an interactive sculpture, a podium commissioned by Dover District Council in collaboration with to animate, Kearsney Abby/Russel Gardens as a cultural, public space.

The circular sculpture / podium is located on top of a slope that was once the Old Open Air Theatre. In order to inspire care for the environment and sustainability we will use felled timber that is already in the park.

The title refers to Edward Barlow’s wife, Alice Barlow (1860-1930) but also to Alice in Wonderland. It can be branded as a minimalist sculpture that acts as a social and sensory place –

ALICE is part of ‘Art in the park: Kearsney interpreted’ an ambitious Arts Council England funded project in Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens, Kent.–Open-Spaces/KearsneyAbbey.aspx
