Tunnel

Canterbury Museum

Artist Hannah Beehre has created an immersive new artwork at Canterbury Museum, as part of the SCAPE Public Art Season 2018, Our Braided Future.

Her sculptural installation, Tunnel (2018) creates the experience of walking through a nebula – clouds of gas and dust in outer space visible in the night sky. Nebulae can be created where new stars are formed, while others are the remnants of dead or dying stars.

Beehre’s Tunnel is created from dyed silk velvet with Swarovski crystals, LED lights and mirrored flooring. There is a subtle visual tension between the fluidity of the dye work, the highly refractive crystals, and the rich, light-absorbing surface of the textile. This is the first large-scale installation Beehre has made that creates an illusion of total immersion through the inclusion of the mirrored floor.

Hannah Beehre’s practice ranges across a variety of media, including drawing, installation, and painting.

Entry to Canterbury Museum is free; donations are appreciated.
