'A Fine Balance' by Contemporary and Country at Houghton Hall will not open on 29 March as previously advertised following Government advice received regarding the Coronavirus pandemic, alongside the exhibition by Anish Kapoor. If Houghton Hall opens later this year, our pop-up will appear alongside the much anticipated exhibition. In the meantime we will present "A Fine Balance"* as an online showcase. This showcase presents recent work by 40+ artists and makers from across East Anglia, all explore narratives original to natural life forms and processes that distinguish different aspects of our environment. They reveal the fragility of unusual topographies and celebrate the cyclical process of a coastal landscape alternating between erosion and renewal.
