Historic Royal Palaces
Hampton Court Palace, April 2015
59 Productions was commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces to create a commemorative artwork to celebrate the artistic, cultural and political history of Hampton Court, to mark the Palace's 500th anniversary.
The digital tapestry is installed in a dedicated space at one end of the iconic Great Hall. Drawing inspiration from the famous Abraham Tapestries in the next room, it weaves together the rich history of the Palace through its five centuries, blending both the familiar and the unexpected, from power struggles and political intrigue to spectacular parties.
The piece will be on display throughout the season of 500th anniversary celebrations, throughout 2015, and can be accessed by all visitors to the Palace.
