SPABIS SCHOLARS AT JUPITER ARTLAND
Ben was asked to accompany the SPABis Scholars on a trip to Bonnington House at Jupiter Artland, just outside Edinburgh. Originally built in 1622, Bonnington House was completely remodelled in 1858 in the Jacobean style and sits in 80 acres of grounds. Jupiter Artland is the outdoor sculpture park surrounding the house, with major works commissioned from sculptors and land artists such as Anish Kapoor and Andy Goldsworthy. The hosts for the day were Ben Tindall and Graciella Ainsworth; Ben was responsible for the masterplan for the contemporary sculpture park and is currently adding two contemporary wings to Bonnington House.
