For the first time, the National Trust's Biddulph Grange Garden in Staffordshire is hosting a contemporary art exhibition as part of the Trust New Art project. The Garden has commissioned five contemporary artists to create a contemporary arts exhibition, with the theme of 'dangerous discoveries'. The exhibition features artists Rebecca Lee, Sarah Tulloch, Rebecca Beinart, Katy Beinart and Laura Youngson Coll, winner of the 2014 Perrier-Jouet Arts Salon prize.
The exhibition theme mirrors the concepts on which the gardens at Biddulph Grange were designed and built. These include the dangers of plant hunting in the Victorian era, unusual climates, trees of gigantic size and the exploration of uncharted territories.
Dangerous Discoveries takes place from 1 August to 31 October 2015.
