Each place has its own special character and identity – a continuous conversation between the physical form and the lives lived and shaped within it.

"As a landscape architect, I try to understand the memories and associations embedded in a place and the natural flows of people, land, water and climate.” Join visionary landscape architect and author Kim Wilkie to talk about the intimate connection between English art, poetry, music and landscape as a celebration of The Arc’s exhibition Infinite Beauty. Kim will illustrate how cultural themes – from Bronze Age earth sculpting to Andy Goldsworthy - are rooted in the land and how we live, die and worship on it.

Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to ask Kim to sign his latest book.

Kim grew up on a smallholding between Bishop’s Waltham and Winchester. He still lives and farms on the same plot, drawing inspiration from the chalk, the tumuli and the longhorns. As a landscape architect, he works on everything from new towns to forestry and fungi. He will weave some of his designs and projects into the talk.

This talk is part of our programming celebrating the exhibition, Infinite Beauty
