Animitas, Christian Boltanski, 2016 🔔
_

Animitas is composed of over 200 small Japanese bells attached to long stems planted in the ground. The bells, chiming to the wind, let out the “music of the soul” which continue to ring with the wind, a sound that remains even when no one is listening.
_

These are placed as to reproduce the map of the stars on the night the artist was born, September 6th, 1944. Animitas refers to the altars that native Indians put on the side of the road to honour the dead. Hence, the artist believes that we are surrounded by ghosts, which are materialized by these bells.

Bunty is a tri-coloured, with big black spot on back, wire haired fox terrier. 7 years old, likely to be very dirty from chasing squirrels and rabbits! Microchipped.

💛💙 Rachel Maclean at Jupiter Artland 💛💙
_

Rachel Maclean’s solo exhibition closes in just over two weeks. The exhibition features four key works from the last decade of her career.
_

Visitors can watch in full her 2017 Venice Biennale commission Spite Your Face, a post-truth dystopian tale inspired by the divisive campaigns currently dominating global politics. As a rare treat, audiences can see one of Maclean’s earliest artworks, The Lion and the Unicorn, 2012, an inspired commentary on Scottish independence and the crisis of the union.
_

Lesser known to gallery audiences are Germs, 2013, and Eyes To Me, 2015, two shorter works created in the vein of info-commercials and kids tv. Timely to revisit in this strange new era of hand-sanitising and social distancing, Germs follows a glamourous female in her battle against an adorable army of pink-and-purple germs, each played by the artist herself. Rather more unsettling is Eyes To Me, made in the style of a children’s television programme, where a young protagonist named Sophie moves through an enchanted garden inhabited by a race of cuddly Cyclopes.

Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrɪkɔːr/)
_

The earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek petra (πέτρα), "rock", or petros (πέτρος), "stone", and īchōr (ἰχώρ), the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.
_

‘Firmament’ by Antony Gormley is a single ‘expanded field’ sculpture constructed from 1019 steel balls held in the space by 1770 steel elements of different lengths, welded together to create a non-regular, polygonal structure whose form dissolves and resolves in space.
_

The landscape and sculpture operate as one, and change with the passing weather. Today the bars carry the soft drops of rain after Scotland’s mini-heatwave.

Dame Phyllida Barlow 👋
_

A huge congratulations to Jupiter artist and friend Phyllida Barlow upon receiving a damehood in the Queen's birthday honours list, recognising the "outstanding achievements of people across the United Kingdom".
_

Barlow has long been respected among British artists, having taught at London’s Slade School of Fine Art for more than 45 years. Jupiter’s relationship began here, as Phyllida taught our founder and director Nicky Wilson, in 2018 Phyllida created her first permanent outdoor sculpture for the Wilson’s, quarry.
_

This honour is entirely deserved, congratulations Phyllida. “I have been asked, ‘Why is your work so big?’ And I think the answer is to do with reach and stretch and going to spaces where I can’t get to and where we don’t usually go to in terms of looking or seeking out.” @phyllidabarlow

Our Story

Jupiter Artland is a contemporary sculpture park set in 100 acres of woodland just outside Edinburgh. We are a registered charity, committed to nurturing the work of outstanding contemporary artists and commissioning site-specific works in response to the landscape. At the heart of everything we do is our ground breaking learning programme, offering free visits for nurseries, schools, colleges, universities and community groups. This is subsidised by general admission ticket sales, paid for classes, workshops and events, and donations.

Jupiter Artland was founded in 2009 by art collectors and philanthropists, Robert and Nicky Wilson. To date we have welcomed over 25,000 learners to Jupiter Artland free of charge. At Jupiter Artland, learners are encouraged to discover the landscape, play in nature, take artistic risks, and develop a sense of agency as they make their own choices, knowing every response will be valid. Jupiter Artland is a magical, nurturing place to learn; children listen differently in this place because it is wild. www.jupiterartland.org

Hey, can you bring your dog along to Jupiter Artland, outdoor areas? Thanks x
Had a great few hours here today, so lovely to be served in the Cafe by staff so delighted to be open and welcoming us in. Fabulous coffee and scones. So quiet throughout the estate it felt as if we had the place to ourselves before the rain started. What a lovely day 💕
Do you have any tickets available for today
Hello where do you book tickets please ?
Loved our trip and highly recommended and will return again soon...
So happy to read in the Evening News about the proposed housing development being dealt a major blow by West Lothian Council. I love Jupiter Artland for its accessibility.
A birthday celebration to remember! Thank you for giving these girls an amazing outdoor experience, Matt and Steve. 🎊🎉
First time at Jupiter Artland absolutely loved it. #jupiterartland #edinburgh #scotland this my favourite Cells of Life.
