Kate Whiteford : Wings of Desire

Kate Whiteford : Wings of Desire


Wings of Desire is a new commission by artist Kate Whiteford, exploring Emily’s hawk, Nero, through film. Using aerial photography and film to create a birds-eye view of the landscape around the Parsonage and across the moors to Top Withens, Whiteford will meditate upon the iconography of the bird of prey, its metaphorical properties and associations with fight and flight, escape and predation. The exhibition also includes a series of new works on paper, and a ‘hawkcam’ will offer opportunities to view the moors from the comfort of your armchair.

Kate Whiteford is a leading exponent of land art. Her work crosses from art to archaeology, from fact to fiction, transforming sites worldwide from remote Hebridean islands, to the hills above Nairobi, to inner city Coventry. These monumental works have come to define a body of work that includes painting, drawings, tapestry and film. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Tate Gallery.
