Although Art as we know it started deep underground, caves have not, until now, been used as a venue for contemporary sculpture.

International in scope and with subjects and materials chosen to complement this unique environment, ‘Back to the Cave’ references the history of cave art, prehistoric cave dwellers and the more recent uses of caves.

We envisage this exhibition as a new way of experiencing contemporary sculpture outside the confines of the white-walled gallery and we hope to evoke an atmosphere akin to that of the prehistoric era with atmospheric lighting providing a fresh and exciting way to see sculpture.
