‘Allotted Space’ 2017 Image, Video and objects.
‘Landscape’ is a human construction: we use it, enjoy it and control it for our own ends. The work ‘Allotted space’ acts as a visual reminder of the ways and the extent to which we designate and control environmental space for our own needs. The work includes a printed image and two standing plinths with handmade objects and a wall based video.
Allotted Space was shown as part of a touring exhibition ‘Intranquility’ curated by Rosie Lesso for the Society of Scottish Artists. Intranquility, which means disturbed or restless, is a subversive play on the more commonly used word tranquility, often used when describing beautiful, calm and remote locations.
Shown at An Talla soleil, Ullapool : Firestation Creative, Dunfermline : Tweeddale Museum, Peebles.
