Displayed in The Western Gallery, Baldock will present a new series, of large-scale textile sculptures, transporting the viewer through an immersive material landscape. A fictitious world where medieval sculpture, sacred geometry and the earthly seasons meet.

Renowned for his sensorial style, Baldock’s work depicts humorous folklore tales, with a fun and exuberant charm. But look more closely and hidden narratives in queer and working people’s histories are exposed.
Touch Wood will include sculpted mythical characters such as a phoenix and a green man. Brought to life by an evocative soundscape produced by musician Luke Barton. Featuring samples of Gregorian chants, recordings of plants and birdsong.
