Running alongside this year's Harley Open Exhibition, ‘Between Islands’ is an exhibition created by Joanna Whittle, who was joint winner of The Harley Open 2019. She explores the relationship between ‘creating worlds’ and ‘creating collections’ and the role curation and display of collections plays in developing narratives - real or imagined. She has produced the paintings, drawings and ceramics on display in response to the landscape of the Welbeck estate and items in The Portland Collection and has displayed these as a collection of artefacts from an imagined world called Do><ia. The project has involved collaboration with artist David Orme, to explore the determinations of display and the decisions made to formalise the fictional into the authentic.

The world described is heavily influenced by the rich fabrics and fine ceramics in The Portland Collection and the secret landscape within the estate- creating islands of silk draped structures, hidden tunnels and overgrown gateways alongside ceramic artefacts from this imagined society. The exhibition will be on show alongside the Harley Open 2020 and is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
