INVITATION TO OUTPOST LAUNCH EVENT
27 JANUARY 2018

OUTPOST BY MARCUS JEFFERIES – INSTALLATION
12pm-4pm Daylight Viewing
5pm-8pm Artist Talk & Evening Viewing

Free Admission

You are invited to the launch of Outpost an installation piece by Bristol based sculptor and installation artist, Marcus Jefferies.
HOST, the newly established cultural venue in the heart of Somerset, invites you to meet one of the West Country’s leading sculptors and hear the thinking behind his latest work. Alongside a talk and guided tour of Outpost, the artist will also present maquettes and works in progress for future sculptural installations.

Outpost takes inspiration from the agricultural architecture of the local area, referencing water towers, storage silos, and bird hides. It also takes on the presence of a watchtower silently surveilling the surrounding landscape. Entering the installation extracts the viewer from the expansive landscape outside into a dark, mediative interior, switching focus from the natural world to the imaginative possibilities of a gallery inside a sculpture.

*HOST requests that you please take responsibility for your own safety when entering the sculpture.

Haggis, Neeps & Tatties available to purchase
