And today, March 25, marks also the premiere of a new exhibition at the Parsonage:
Brontë 200: Kate Whiteford
Wings of Desire
May 25th 2018 10:00am - July 23rd 2018 05:30pm

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 will also include a series of new works on paper.
Kate Whiteford is a renowned Scottish artist based in London. Her work crosses from art to archaeology, from fact to fiction, transforming sites worldwide from remote Hebridean island, 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 and she has represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale.
