ANNUAL KINETIC SCULPTURE EXHIBITION 2022  

The 2021 exhibition is currently in progress, following on from the successful exhibitions in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 (see films on webpages), Dulverton Weir & Leat Conservation Trust will stage the Dulverton Kinetic Sculpture Exhibition again in 2022. Work will be exhibited on ‘pitches’ set in Dulverton’s historic mill leat from 1st July to 31st July.

  

The exhibition offers artists a challenge in terms of design and manufacture but also offers them considerable public exposure and a great opportunity for artists to engage with the public viewer.

The exhibition usually opens with a formal opening ceremony with members of the media being present.

Transforming Movement Opening

Sculptures are placed in the mill leat which on average is 9 inches deep, 2 metres wide and flows at approximately 4 miles per hour.

Fed from a huge weir to the north, the mill leat passes right through the town presenting some 500 metres of flowing water with many vantage points for members of the public to view the kinetic sculptures.

Dulverton is an excellent venue for a Kinetic Sculpture Exhibition being a vibrant market town in Exmoor National Park, a favourite destination for large numbers of visitors and as a local centre for shopping. There are good restaurants, pubs, hostel, camping barn, B&B and hotel facilities as well as a large touring caravan site set within the town.
