Curated by Lucy Day & Eliza Gluckman

Seven contemporary art commissions highlight the progression towards equality through the stories of women who have contributed to the spirit & history of Knole.

Lindsay Seers' commission involves an on-line work to be viewed after a visit to Knole. Cards in Knole visitor's centre lead visitors to the website address where chapters of a work are hosted.

Knole holds the handwritten manuscript of Virginia Woolf's Orlando, dedicated to Vita-Sackville West. The Orlando text is an encoded and mythical biography of Vita and is referred to as a love letter to Vita. There are many descriptions of Knole in the novel.

Seers' draws on this text and the biographies of Virginia and Vita, passing them through a living protagonist - an actor Sara Sugarman. The lives of all three (and Seers) entwine and divide in a layered work which takes a notion (which Virginia expounds in Orlando) that in a life time we embody two thousand and fifty- two versions of our selves - and thoughts are layered in the mind seventy- six times at any given moment.

Using text, sound and image the work is a hybrid book/film.
