Greece Recreated : Belsay Hall

This online exhibition tells the story of Sir Charles Monck’s travels in the Mediterranean: first an epic honeymoon to Greece in 1804-1806, and a later journey to the island of Sicily in January 1831. His encounters with ancient Greek antiquities and their landscapes influenced his design of the house and gardens at Belsay in Northern England. Monck’s travel diaries, and nineteenth century artworks, illustrate his journeys; while artefacts from the Shefton Collection of Greek Art and Archaeology illuminate the Greek world that inspired him.

I was fortunate enough to be the sound recordist and editor for this creative and informative project. You can view the online installation here:
