Mark Houghton

An exhibition by Hay-on-Wye based artist Mark Houghton. The show will consist of works conceived for, and in response to the flat roof area of Great Brampton House.

Visitors will find their gaze struggles to find a view as one would traditionally expect when ascending a building. Instead the horizon is punctuated all around by a row of raised balustrades. Thus one is either forced to look upwards for a vista or confront the area immediately around them. Working with this dynamic Houghton will produce site specific works that drift in and out of what one would or wouldn’t expect to find on such a non-space.
