project dartmoor exmoor northmberland

Triparks brought together six artists working across the UK in three national parks: Dartmoor, Exmoor, and Northumberland.

In 2008, the artists (selected from from over 220 applications from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) first spent a week within their own National Park Authority, working with a variety of staff an in many different parts of the authority. They then followed their own paths, working with local communities, local places, landscapes, or with scientists, ecologists, and others, spending a further three weeks resident in the park. From the project grew an extraordinary array of artwork, some of which is featured here and some of which can be seen at exhibitions across the UK in 2009 and beyond..

The artists for the project are Paul Grimmer and Bridget Kennedy (in Northumberland NP), Karen Guthrie and Harald Smykla (in Exmoor NP) and Volkhardt Müller and Hugh Nankivell (in Dartmoor NP). They represent a broad array of artistic practices.

Aune Head Arts is the lead agency in the project, assisted locally by Somerset Art Works, and Allenheads Contemporary Arts, as well as the respective National Park Authorities

We would also like to acknowledge generous support from lead funders Arts Council England and the Northern Rock Foundation, and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, as well as from Dartmoor National Park, Northumberland National Park, West Devon Borough Council, and Artlife (Somerset).
