Things to do this month


Christian Boltanski, Animitas

Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh, 31st July to 25th September

In 2009, Nicky and Robert Wilson launched Jupiter Artland just outside Edinburgh. It was an unconventional collection of outdoor sculpture commissioned from leading sculptors—from Anish Kapoor to Cornelia Parker. The 100 acres of woodland and meadows around their Jacobean Manor, together with indoor exhibition spaces, have hosted some of the most adventurous contemporary art north of the border. This summer they open the Edinburgh Festival season with a new permanent installation by the revered French artist Christian Boltanski, his first in the UK. Animitas is a cluster of hundreds of small Japanese bells attached to long stems, planted on an island within the Duck Pond, in a pattern that maps the stars on the night the artist was born, 6th September 1944. Boltanski will present two further ongoing works—including Les archives du coeur, a collection of recorded heartbeats.

Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden from the Livre des proprétiés des choses on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum (1414)

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s August issue: Rachel Sylvester argues that the EU referendum has started a re-alignment of British politics while Roger Scruton and Jay Elwes say that it has thrown Britain into a bout of self-examination with the fundamental question of who we are as a nation at its centre. In addition, Peter Mandelson says without reform the EU could fall victim to a populist uprising. Also in this issue: Philip Ball explores quantum entanglement, George Magnus looks at the political situation in Brazil ahead of the Olympics and Adam Mars-Jones unpicks the work of Steven Spielberg. James Cusick looks at the impact of the Chilcot report and Kathy Lette explains what the world would be like if she was in charge.
