There is an underwater orchard somewhere along the River Cam. From time to time during Autumn its dapples escape and appear on the surface of the water…

Artist Lucy Steggals and the Saturday Museum are currently developing a new work in response to the North Cambridge area and Kettle’s Yard. The project will culminate in a display at Arbury Community Centre on Saturday 5 November, which forms part of a series of exhibitions and events taking place this Autumn celebrating 50 years of Kettle’s Yard being part of the University of Cambridge.

Lucy is currently sifting through material in the Kettle’s Yard and Hope Mirrlees archives. Click on the image on the left to see some of the quotes from Kettle’s Yard creator Jim Ede that she has been inspired by.

Lucy is thinking about dapples and apples/ shadows/ fiddle fish/ the union of black and white/ long eared pale blue moon rabbits/ pocket stones/ glass buoys/ spiral stairs/ gilded cracks and mirrors like moons.

The Saturday Museum is a moveable museum that exists in multiple locations and online. Currently it has wings in Leipzig, Newcastle, London, Buenos Aires and Cambridge.  It is currently collecting  material relating to play, carousels, entrances & exits, a yellow square, pauses on bridges and dapples.
