Curated by Jolanta Jagiello

Visitors to Nunhead Cemetery will have the opportunity to enjoy Woodland Wonders, a public art exhibition of woodland art installations sited in the Restored Anglican Chapel. Its open throughout the weekends in September 2011 from 11am-5pm, including Open House Weekend 17th-18th September 2011. This exhibition in association with FONC is curated by Jolanta Jagiello and funded by Nunhead and Peckham Rye Community Council Grant from Southwark, and ArtGoingPlaces.

The exhibition draws up upon the cemetery`s abandoned past and its transformation into a ash-sycamore woodland, natural in structure and growing among vegetated gravestones, with many remnants of the 1840 Victorian plantings remaining, including a formal avenue of towering lime trees. 15 artists have been inspired by Nunhead Cemetery`s woodland and wildlife.

Woodland tours and leaflet will be available to visitors on Sundays 4th, 11th, 26th September, and 17th-18th September (Open House Weekend), from 2pm-3.30pm.
