Fintan Dawson’s photographs depict segments of the historically rich landscape surrounding Haltwhistle. In the images we see evidence of human intervention within the landscape, suggestive of the individuals that populated the area during the Roman Empire and the stories that are attached to this.
Peter Hanmer’s detailed sculptural work draws upon some of the social ideology from the end and aftermath of the Second World War and contrasts this with current political themes. A satirical narrative is present, using animal bones to form characters, as an imaginary plot unfolds.
Jo Hislop’s film installation shows fragmented moments from the journey of walking and exploring the local area. Considering what it means to experience a place, how the physical body interacts within the landscape and the feelings that are attached to this experience.
