Contemporary Art Orbiting Edinburgh…
Jupiter Artland is a contemporary sculpture garden in the private gardens of Bonnington House on the western fringes of Edinburgh. Works by many of today's leading artists, sculptors and land artists have been commissioned and then constructed in situ.The relationship of each artwork with its specific topographical location is a crucial feature of the artland, that is, art within the landscape. The garden is a garden of discovery - an earthwork here, a copse of cradled rocks there, the entrance to a fathomless burrow right before your feet. We provide a map but no set routes. There are pathways, in places, but no path. Come and discover, contemplate and delight.
Jupiter Artland has charitable status and is committed to providing an educational resource for schools in the region.
The Foundation is also committed to nurturing the work of outstanding contemporary artists. To this end it aims to offer a unique annual residency on an invitation basis and will continue to commission new site specific works. In conception, Jupiter Artland is a continuing work-in-progress.
