Cavalry 360° Hadrian's Cavalry Art Installation

Imagine yourself: a battle-weary Pict awaiting your fate at the hands of the ruthlessly disciplined Roman Cavalry, and then you hear the sound of 2,000 hooves...

Brand new art installation at Chesters Roman Fort creates a unique way to experience the Hadrian's Cavalry exhibition and captures the power and terrifying anticipation of 500 cavalry hurtling across the countryside. Cavalry 360° is the first 'sound' installation for English Heritage and evokes the thundering sound of 500 cavalry horses who were once stationed at Chesters Roman Fort in the 2nd century. 

Cavalry 360° uses drum-like musical instruments to create the thunder of 2,000 hooves moving across the landscape. 32 wind turbines will drive hundreds of mini beaters to generate an ever-changing rhythm.

At 3.5 metres high and 12 metres wide, the unique installation has been commission by English Heritage as part of the Hadrian's Cavalry exhibition. The ambitious installation has been created by artist Mark Nixon from NEON.

Each object moves its head in a particular way to give it different characteristics of human behaviour. Some chat amongst themselves, some shy away and others confidently move to grab your attention.
