The Language of Landscapes

Landscapes. Manifested and manifesting. A map of time condensed into space. Our relationship intricate and interwoven. Our inner landscapes echoes of that in which we live.

Just booked onto Language, Landscape & the Sublime a two-day symposium bringing together artists and thinker from a range of disciplines to explore our relationship to landscape. Contributors include Louise Ann Wilson talking about creating her walking-performance Warnscale about In/Fertility and Childlessness.
