Installation and Land Artist Rosie Leventon has recently been making work referring to vernacular architecture – anything from termite mounds to Buddhist stupas. For b-side she has made a new sculptural piece which takes as its starting point a little known aspect of Portland’s archaeology – the curious Beehive Chambers. Several of these underground prehistoric stone structures have been found on the island but nothing now remains except a few old photos and drawings.
Rosie’s installation can be found in the courtyard of Portland Museum, Wakeham. The museum will also host a small display of information and archive documents relating to the Beehive Chambers.
**UPDATE** ON SATURDAY 15 SEPTEMBER THE MUSEUM WILL OPEN AT 11.40AM
