‘Covid Dreams’ is a fully immersive audio and visual art installation at the Tithe Barn, this June, by artists Pain and Gayer-Anderson.
Two local artists reflect on a year of siege from the intangible, a landscape where you cannot save yourself but you can save others.
Gideon Pain’s work plays on the mundane and every day that we slip through on our way to somewhere else. It is about collective moments, some tragic and some euphoric, when the sharing of an experience gives significance to something unnoticed.
Theo Gayer-Anderson has been exploring dystopia in a series of installations for many years and now finds present day events eclipsing his own visions of the future.
All set within the unique grade II listed, timber-frame Tithe Barn. The temporary installation will be free for the public to view on Saturday 12th, Sunday 13th, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th June. Pre-booking encouraged.

The Tithe Barn Trust is excited to announce that local sculptor and installation artist Theo Gayer-Anderson will be exhibiting ‘Oracle’ at the Tithe Barn, in Landbeach, near Cambridge.
Theo says “Oracle is a fully immersive audio and visual installation that celebrates the rise of jellyfish in our toxic oceans and draws attention to the very real and imminent dangers of climate change. The Tithe Barn makes for the perfect setting to showcase my work.”
The installation artwork will occupy the entire timber frame Tithe Barn, so that the spectator has to walk through in order to engage fully with the work of art. What makes installation art different from sculpture or other traditional art forms is that it is a complete unified experience, rather than a display of separate, individual artworks. The focus on how the viewer experiences the work and the desire to provide an intense experience for them is a dominant theme in installation art.
The Landbeach Tithe Barn is one of just a handful of buildings of its type remaining in Cambridgeshire. Ours is unique with so many historic features such as a thatched roof, elm timber frame, timber granary and brick threshing floor. Experts believe the barn may well date to the medieval period.
The temporary installation will be free for the public to view on Saturday 10th, Sunday 11th, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October by timed entry. A limited number of tickets are now available to pre-book at https://tithebarntrust.org.uk/learning/2020-events/ . Booking essential, so book now to avoid disappointment.
