In conjunction with the exhibition “Art in Focus: The British Castle—A Symbol in Stone,” the Center will screen the short film “Hadleigh Castle, 1829.” Through an immersive process that moved between drawings, oil sketches, and the exhibition work, Constable developed radical new ways of depicting the world. The film presents a parallel hands-on engagement with process, using idiosyncratic physical means to bring new life to digital images. Through this dialogue between digital technologies and early nineteenth-century landscape painting, “Hadleigh Castle, 1829” meditates on the relationship between how one conceives and how one represents the world.
