Bruce Munro’s first one-man show
Touches hearts across 23 acres at Longwood Gardens USA
As night fell on Friday in the eastern states of the USA ‘Light: Installations by
Bruce Munro at Longwood Gardens’ was unveiled to the US press. On Saturday
visitors poured in to see the much-anticipated artworks, and they were not
disappointed.
The heart-stopping 23-acre show marks the first time Munro installations have been
seen outside the UK, and his debut large-scale one-man-show anywhere. It has been
commissioned by Longwood to run from June 9th to September 29th this year.
Longwood Gardens has a special place in East-Coaster’s hearts and is one of the
great display gardens of the world. Timed tickets to Munro’s exhibition there
have been selling out weeks in advance and iPhone/iPad apps are now available on
iTunes.
The historic gardens have antique glasshouses not dissimilar to those at Kew
Gardens outside London, and they regularly feature world-class musical and arts
events as well as educational programmes.
Munro’s ‘LIGHT’ consists of six large-scale outdoor installations, two
installations within the 4-acre Grand Conservatory, and a small collection of
illuminated sculptures in the Music Room. There are many new works by the
Wiltshire-based Munro as well as never-before-seen views of Longwood at night.
“The unmatched beauty of Longwood Gardens inspired me in so many ways,” said
Munro. “It’s been an exciting artistic challenge. I hope that guests will see in
these works the beauty of melding light and landscape to become one.”

The Installations:
FOREST OF LIGHT is a serene forest of 20,000 illuminated stems scattered along a
forest walk. WATER-TOWERS is a monumental maze of 69 towers in the water meadow,
which seem to move in a monumental glowing dance as they change colour in
synchronisation with music. In WATERLILIES, Munro pays homage to Longwood’s
iconic waterlily by floating platters of shimmering CDs onto the Large Lake.
Nearby on the banks, the 7,000-stem FIELD OF LIGHT beckons visitors toward its
enchanting glow.  ARROW SPRING artfully mixes the horticultural splendour of
Salvia plants and sparkling LEDs to create a meandering hillside stream. For
‘CANDLELIGHT’, in Longwood’s tree house, Munro has placed ceramic candles lit
with xenon along the beams and angled mirrors to refract their glowing light.
Inside the Conservatory, the Orangery is hung with six SNOWBALLS suspended from
the ceiling. Each chandelier is more than nine feet in diameter and encircles 127
glass balls. LIGHT SHOWER rains more than 1,600 drops of twinkling light over the
flooded Fern Floor, creating a magical reflection that intensifies the luminous
shower.
Finally, the Music Room features a collection of 6 smaller sculptures by Munro
[Beach without Sand, Restless Fakir, Gnasher’s Big Raspberry, Boogie Woogie
Tower, Rapunzel’s Towers and Mettabhavana].

One of these small pieces – Mettabhavana – is a model for an extraordinary
building. “I saw it in a dream. I couldn’t tell where the light was coming from,
it seemed to shine through the walls,” said Bruce. A special website at
Mettabhavana.com explores Munro’s passionate hopes of finding a patron to build
this sculptural edifice. Surrounded by water channels and lit by candles, its sole
use is for practicing the ‘Loving Kindness’ meditation.
Munro has made small contributions to group-shows in the USA in the past,
including Contemplating The Void at New York’s iconic Guggenheim Museum, and a
show of contemporary glass at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery.
To date, his best-known artworks are CD Sea at Long Knoll Field, and Field of
Light at The Holburne Museum in Bath and the Eden Project in Cornwall. His work
has also been much admired at the 12th century Salisbury Cathedral and at the
Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
“Longwood Gardens is thrilled to host Bruce Munro’s first large-scale exhibition
in the U.S.,” said Paul Redman, the Director. “His imaginative works will
enchant and amaze our guests with their beauty and ingenuity, but also inspire
them to see and experience gardens in a whole new way.”  “What also appealed to
us about Bruce’s work is its focus on low-energy output and his sensitivity to
the landscape,” said Redman. “Bruce shares Longwood’s commitment to sustainable
practices.”
