A NEW art installation is being launched at Haworth’s Bronte Parsonage Museum.

Another World, by award-winning design practice NEON, has been inspired by the childhood fantasy worlds of the young Brontes and the rugged landscape which helped shape some of the siblings’ classic works.

The installation – which opens on Saturday, September 18, and runs until October 3 – forms part of Summer Unlocked, a programme of free cultural and sporting events taking place across the Bradford district.

Commissioned to “bring together culture and play”, the work – nine metres in length, four metres tall and nine metres wide – will resemble a giant washing line, with fabric fluttering from it. Audiences will be able to interact with the piece.

Throughout the opening weekend, there will be a range of free activities. Attractions will include the international street performance agency Fool’s Paradise, giant sloths and legendary creatures from Japanese mythology will wander on the Saturday, and oversized fish on stilts and a selfie-obsessed mermaid will be among those entertaining on the Sunday.

Rebecca Yorke, the museum’s interim director, said: “We wanted to create a piece where the museum meets the moor and Another World will do just that. It will be set-up in Parson’s Field, the large meadow at the back of the parsonage, which connects Haworth with the moorland that is so closely linked with the Brontes and their work.

“We are proud to be involved in Summer Unlocked and thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase work that builds on our reputation as one of Bradford’s significant, internationally-renowned cultural organisations, as the whole district looks forward to Bradford’s bid to be UK City of Culture in 2025.”

Harry Jelly, audience development officer for contemporary arts commissions at the museum, said: “One of the most striking things about Another World is how the installation moves with the ever-present wind that ‘wuthers’ across the moors.”

The installation – supported by Bradford Council and Arts Council England – will be open Wednesdays to Sundays, 11am to 4pm.
