No Stone Left Unturned
19th January - 1st March 2020
The exhibition will be open during the Caves opening times 10am to 5pm daily including Sundays and Bank Holidays, until Sunday 27 October, at which point reverting to Winter opening 11am to 4pm Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
No Stone Left Unturned, an exhibition/residency by local artist Paul Hazelton at the newly-opened Margate Caves, will explore connections between the Caves and its surrounding area and certain individuals.
The exhibition will include Margaret Bryan, an 18th century scientist who as well as running a girls’ school above the Caves, arguably had a pivotal role in the progression of female science writers in Britain; and Arthur Walton Rowe, the eminent paleontologist, considered the greatest chalk fossil expert to this day and who was responsible for discovering the several zones in the chalk cliffs of Thanet.
Using dust, the artist will sculpt figures based on these people. Their “shadows”, drawn in pencil, will depict their lives & legacies & invited guests will contribute articles & talks.
