In the Air is a sound installation created by artist David Ward made specifically for the unique garden at Kilver Court. Various sound recordings are replayed underneath the arches of the great Charlton Viaduct that runs dramatically through these beautiful gardens.

The recordings include speaking and singing voices and ambient, atmospheric sounds, as diverse as different weather conditions and engines, that relate to the cultural and industrial history of this remarkable site.

Part of A Landscape Of Objects. Funded by Arts Council England and working in partnership with Kilver Court.

Artist Talk: Sunday 1 OCT 2-4pm. Book via SAW: 01458253800

General admission to the garden applies.
