DREAM­ING SPIRES

A new show cel­e­brates ex­trav­a­gant ed­i­fices from a by­gone era

Town & Country (UK) - - COUNTRY -

There is some­thing about a lost build­ing that cap­tures the imag­i­na­tion, and Bri­tain’s many de­mol­ished fol­lies, tem­ples and coun­try houses form the sub­ject of Ed Kluz’s new ex­hi­bi­tion at York­shire Sculp­ture Park. In­spired by old en­grav­ings of am­bi­tious ar­chi­tec­tural en­deav­ours, his col­lages are a trib­ute to the van­ished struc­tures of yes­ter­year. Per­haps the most evoca­tive im­age of all is his print of the long-lost Belle Vista, a Gothic tower that once stood in the grounds of the sculp­ture park it­self. cg ‘Ed Kluz: Sheer Folly – Fan­ci­ful Build­ings of Bri­tain’ is at York­shire Sculp­ture Park (www.ysp.org.uk) un­til 25 Fe­bru­ary 2018.
