Houghton Hall Permanent Collection

Aside from the Anish Kapoor exhibition, Houghton Hall in Norfolk has a sculpture collection by prominent artists. These include works by Rachel Whiteread, Stephen Cox, Jeppe Hein, Richard Long and James Turrell.

I am particularly fascinated with ‘Waterflame’ by Jeppe Hein. As you walk through the immaculate gardens, you are confronted with the sight of a water fountain that is on fire. There is an element of disbelief and humour at this seemingly impossible pairing.
