Broad Meadow
A wildflower meadow installation and audio experience by artists Sylvia Rimat and Charli Clark.
Step into the lost nature of Broadmead.
Imagine a colourful, tranquil wildflower meadow amidst the hustle and bustle of Bristol’s built-up shopping centre, Broadmead. With their new project Broad Meadow, artists Sylvia Rimat and Charli Clark are growing that very place.
You’re invited to take a seat and relax in a wildflower meadow installation. Whilst immersed in the plants, you’ll be able to access an audio piece via your smartphone. The audio experience addresses our intertwined relationship with the plant world and connects us to Bristol prior to the 1500s, when Broadmead was a meadow, regularly flooded by the river Frome.
