Lucy Livingstone explores the relationship between narrative and space. Using performance, site-specific installation, video screenings, photography and animation to examine philosophical questions about how we negotiate our environment and how spatial relationships are constructed through, and mediated by, cultural, political and economic imperatives.
Drawing on a rich history of walking artists, which emerged from the literary lineage of Edgar Allen Poe and Walter Benjamin, and manifested in the Dadaist, The Surrealists and the Situationalists, she has developed a strategy of ‘getting lost’ on immersive walks. Her walks document the environment through lens based and aural recordings, using the material to create re-presentations of the sites.
