John Newling installation at BioCity: from 16th September


Science and contemporary art will be brought together to explore Nottingham’s forgotten riverside spaces in a new installation at one of Europe’s largest science incubators. From this Wednesday, Nottingham-based artist John Newling will create an installation in a BioCity laboratory. The Clearing is part of Hinterland, a series of events and talks to accompany new site-specific temporary public art. Over the next month, John will turn documents relating to the space around Nottingham’s River Trent into soil and eventually, into trees. Sounds interesting. You’re invited to visit his lab and see the hydroponic system at work from this Wednesday.

Open: Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays – 10am 4pm
This event is free
Location: BioCity Laboratory, Pennyfoot Street,  Nottingham, NG1 1GF
