Andrew Burton is one the ENTWINED associated artists. He will spend time at Highgreen over the course of the programme and make work for the final exhibition.
My work situates sculpture and installation in relation to historic sites, landscape and architecture. I take an experimental approach to materials and processes, combining materials traditionally associated with sculpture such as clay with other materials that are more ephemeral – like plants, or embodying impermanence in the way the sculpture is made. Recently, I’ve been working in Africa collaborating with artisans and traditional craft workers as well as other artists. The work we have made occupies a territory between art, craft and the day-to-day object and is characterised by the centrality of the human hand in the making process.
