20 May–27 August 2017
Rachel Kneebone is the exhibiting artist for ‘White Cube at Glyndebourne’ 2017. Kneebone’s intricate porcelain sculptures address and question the human condition: taking themes of renewal, transformation, the life cycle and the experience of inhabiting the body.
The London-based artist has created three new sculptures inspired by two of the operas being staged at the Festival this summer – Cavalli’s Hipermestra and a new opera based on Hamlet by composer Brett Dean and librettist Matthew Jocelyn.
The exhibition takes place in the third year of a collaboration between White Cube and White Cube, and is housed in a state-of-the-art gallery in Glyndebourne’s gardens, designed by London-based architects Carmody Groarke. It will be open to audiences throughout the Festival.
