Solveig’s Forest, National Gallery, London
Light installation which responded to the two paintings in the Octagonal gallery, by Claude and JMW Turner. Each depicts the rise of Empires of classical age and by extension their fall. This resonated with Dalton’s recent drawings of the Euston Trees which were cut down to make way for a train station. The projected linear drawings distort over the Neo classical architecture of the gallery becoming like cracks in the masonry.
The work was collaboration with the Bath Festival Orchestra who performed a recital of Peer Gynt by Edvard Grieg.
