CAROL WYSS_THE MIND HAS MOUNTAINS
Visual Art
Brantwood House, Lake District,
LESS DETAILSMORE DETAILS

THE MIND HAS MOUNTAINS is an immersive installation for Brantwood’s Blue Gallery. The visitor entering the gallery will be surrounded by a vista made up of large unframed etchings extending from floor to ceiling and filling the room. These are images of structures from inside the human skull, evoking a mountainous landscape reminiscent of the Lake District and the Swiss Alps where Carol Wyss grew up and which Ruskin frequently visited. He famously said that “Mountains are the bones of the earth”, and he utilized the skeleton metaphor repeatedly in his works to invoke the very essence of a thing.
