The landscaped grounds of the Culloden Hotel are always beautiful, but from May they are more stunning than ever. There are sculptures on display in the Culloden grounds. Curator Lorraine Brett has spent the last week installing the sculptures - by some of Ireland's most renowned artists - in their new, temporary home.
It was delicate, nerve-wracking work and she is obviously relieved to have accomplished it without incident. It took ten men to maneuver her into her lovely spot. In addition to the pint-size princess, there are abstract sculptures of blocks and curves, statues of women if you are easily shocked, be warned that most of them are naked and animals situated decoratively throughout the grounds.
A reclining nude by Paddy Campbell is carefully positioned on a grassy slope so anyone walking down the nearby stairs catches sight of her. It is lifelike enough to warrant a double-take. In a nearby copse of trees a stag stands poised, head turned towards the people walking down the path towards it.
They are so many dynamics when you put it outside: how the sun reacts to it, how it glistens on the bronze and the vegetation around it. Outside, sculptures come alive. The exhibition, entitled Art in the Gardencame off the back of a similar show at Brackenstone House in Dublin in The show had an Italian theme, with ten Italian sculptors working with a selection of Irish sculptors. Howard Hastings, one of the owners of the Culloden, visited the exhibition and was intrigued by the concept.
It was a unique opportunity.
