Bronze beasts

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

TO mark the open­ing today of his lat­est tri­en­nial ex­hi­bi­tion at Mall Gal­leries, Lon­don SW1, Hamish Mackie’s larger than life An­dalu­sian Stal­lion (left) will be erected on the ter­race of the Bri­tish Coun­cil’s Mall head­quar­ters. In this, he fol­lows in the foot­steps of Henry Moore and Turner Prize-win­ning Mark Wallinger (he of the first fourth­plinth sculp­ture, Ecce Homo). The pow­er­ful bronze will re­main in situ for a month and the ex­hi­bi­tion, ‘Life in Bronze’, which brings to­gether 100 sculp­tures in­spired by trav­els to Aus­tralia, In­dia and Africa, in ad­di­tion to Bri­tish wild and do­mes­tic an­i­mals, will run from Oc­to­ber 10 to 22 (www. mall­gal­leries.org.uk). Mr Mackie has sup­ported wildlife charity Tusk for 20 years and this ex­hi­bi­tion is no ex­cep­tion. In ad­di­tion, 10% of sales will go to the Coun­try­side Al­liance. On Oc­to­ber 18, COUN­TRY LIFE will host a pri­vate view for read­ers with Rox­ton Field Sports and the Coun­try­side Al­liance, with drinks and canapés (6pm–9pm). Email rosie.pa­ter­son@ timeinc.com if you would like to come.
