The co-production DVD titled ‘Tangents, a mindscape in a landscape’ is the result of a collaboration between Cecile Elstein and Maureen Kendal. It presents the artists journey from the inspiration of the urban regeneration in Castlefirld Manchester UK, to the design, building and video of a temporary sculpture for an English country garden designed by ‘Capability’ Brown. Inspired by the history of the English country garden, the painting titled ‘The corn sifters’ by the 19th century painter Gustave Courbet and European art movements of the 19th century; the sculpture and the DVD captures participation and response of the public to this contemporary, temporary, sculptural installation in the beginning of the 21st century.

Brief synopsis of ‘PRESENT’.
This privileged summer is, as with all exhibits, transient. The video takes us from Castlefield, an area of regeneration in the city of Manchester U.K. to design sculpture for a National Trust Garden in Cambridgeshire in the English countryside.
In spring hares are disturbed in a wheat field. A temporary sculpture/installation made of rope and metal is built. The sculpture is appreciated in different ways by members of the visiting public and other happenings. By the autumn, the grass has grown through the sculpture and it is time to take it down, leaving the countryside to sheep, cows and birds.
A butterfly alights in that split second. Don’t miss it!
