This exhibition offers an opportunity to look at artists deeply engaged with the landscapes of the North and Lincolnshire. Neverends is a consideration of the ways in which personal, industrial and recreational memories linger in place. In their work Far & Near, Linda Ingham and composer David Power explore our Expressions of Continual Bonds to Absent Others from their studies of memorial benches. In Outfalls poet Harriet Tarlo and Judith Tucker present poems and drawings from their collaborative work on the Louth Navigation. They are interested in the relationship between the original River Ludd and the canal itself as its industrial past becomes absorbed into semi-wilderness, creating niches for local flora and fauna in its culverts, bridges and locks. David Ainley shows work from his series Quarrying, Landscape Issues and Veins. He is interested in how landscape has been shaped by overlooked labour. This exhibition is an excerpt from an Arts Council funded project and in the original exhibition this work was be viewed in relation to pieces by Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Long, Martin Parr, Jane Harris, Brian Alterio, Birgit Skiold and Hamish Fulton. They will be represented through reproduction here.
