Bowes Museum Exhibition Clockwork Garden

Bowes Museum Exhibition Clockwork Garden

Only you can hold them at bay and fill the seed with enough wonder and joy to send it safely back into space… 

The Clockwork Garden exhibition is an immersive and interactive installation full of strange metallic fronds, glimmering animations and whirring sounds. Inside it you will invent garden stories in the puppet theatre, dream in the clouds, make the garden bloom with colourful paper flowers, create mechanical artwork, puzzle out the magic of seeds and discover art from some brilliant contemporary artists. 

In our own Earthly garden grounds you will be able to delve further into this fantastical story with The Clockwork Garden Adventure trail. Follow a curious, illustrated map and explore the grounds, finding tendrils of the mechanical seed, completing tasks and challenges and solving clues left by the wondrous characters of the Bowes' founders, both historical and fictional... 

This wondrous world has been specially created by national children's arts charity The House of Fairy Tales.

Alongside all the interactive installations the exhibition will include artworks from: Gavin Turk, Sir Peter Blake, Mat CollishawCabaret Mechanical Theatre, Simon English, Georgie Hopton, Simon Periton, Marvyn Gaye Chetwynd, Andrew RaeJosh Knowles, Ian Dawson and Steven Claydon.
