Nicky & Robert Wilson, founders of the award-winning 
contemporary sculpture garden Jupiter Artland, curatedEcho Peel by Caroline Achaintre
our 2020 Summer Show. In the context of a pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, they saw the artist in the role of emissary with the power to mirror concerns about our our society and its attitudes to race, the environment and the economy with exuberant and purposeful statements. 

On the sculpture terrace, we exhibited Echo Peel by Caroline Achaintre. The French-born artist describes her work as: “fragile but also a protective layer. It reminds me of another type of outer layer where you change by putting it on. The two holes could be seen as eyes to see through or to see in to.” 

Echo Peel gained extra meaning during lockdown, as we adjusted to wearing face masks and coverings in our daily lives. With thanks to Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and Arcade.
