The motif of the landscape in art has long had a problematic history. Used as a symbol for Nationalism in the Romanticist art of post-enlightenment period, it has continued to function as an ideological battleground where the clash between cultural and societal values finds form. Working across the mediums of photo-media, sculpture and installation, Bristol based Darn Thorn and Rodney Harris and US artists Amber Ginsburg and Joseph Madrigal will discuss how the landscape disrupted by warfare or environmental damage functions in relation to their recent practice.
