Under Threat

By  Ann Goddard 2024

‘Under Threat’, is a ground based installation of 56 bark cloth and mild steel forms alluding to fungi or dying flowers. It evolved from research into the impact of human activity on biodiversity, which revealed 40%-45% of plant species are at risk of extinction from deforestation, change of land use and climate change. The bark cloth has been burnt and distressed then mounted on mild steel rods which in time will rust, highlighting potential loss. 

The installation is part of ‘Fresh Air Sculpture 2024’, organised by the Quenington Sculpture Trust. The show is taking place in the beautiful riverside gardens of the Old Rectory, Quenington, nr Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 5BN.
Open Sunday 16th June – Sunday 7th July, 10am-5pm daily.
Adults £10, children under 18 free, catalogues £5. Tickets can be purchased on arrival or online at
