This is _ Land

30th April 2018 @ 10:00 am - 28th June 2018 @ 4:00 pm, Artlink Hull

  • This event has passed.

‘This Is _ Land’ is an on-going project exploring ‘freedom of movement’ in poetic collision with geology and land usage as we come to terms with the effects of inhabiting what has been termed the ‘Anthropocene’ – the geological age humans may have produced through our collective behaviours. The project asks broad questions initiated by the spaces in the title.

Local artist, Matt Fratson, uses a range of historic resources to pose questions about ownership, migration, and sustainability. By juxtaposing scans, screen grabs, and pixelated photos from our familiar present day feed of sensationalist ‘crisis’ imagery, he is able to explore how mankind’s relationships to land can become misshapen and deliberately fragmented like a damaged image file.
