on form is an exhibition of sculpture in stone held at Asthall Manor every other summer. The on form years are the even years, so we held our first exhibition in 2002, and we had been preparing for our tenth in summer 2020. Sadly, this had to become an online exhibition, however, we are pleased to be planning to open the gardens, for on form unlocked. 2nd – 31st May 2021.
The owners, residents, gardeners and sculptors are all involved in the preparation and running of the exhibition. Thinking about the exhibition inspires our gardening, challenging us to create new and surprising places for sculpture to lend its power to the planting and the landscape.
The biennial rhythm is important, because on form is known for the quality of its work and the care given to its curating. It also gives our beautiful garden time to recover from the scars of installation.
