A new installation by artist and filmmaker Ben Rivers premiers in a very special setting for Somerset Art Weeks Festival. Rivers returns to the county regularly, his commitment and knowledge to context is as impressive as his international recognition. Rivers was awarded the prestigious Dutch Eye Art and Film Prize in 2016 and in 2013 completed an extraordinary Artangel commission.
