Landscape Trauma explores the different ways in which we impact the landscape and suggests that nature cannot be viewed without considering our relationship to it. Landscape is understood as a site of history and conflict as well as the subject of more recent human interventions that include farming, industry, oil exploration, tourism, terrorism and war.
The exhibition features the work of Keith Arnatt, John Blakemore, Victor Burgin, John Davies, Willie Doherty, Melanie Friend, Fay Godwin, Paul Hart, Paul Hill, Roshini Kempadoo, Simon Norfolk, Ingrid Pollard, Paul Seawright, Mitra Tabrizian, and Jane and Louise Wilson.
Its title acknowledges a previous exhibition on the subject curated by Richard Hylton and its timing coincides with the 25th anniversary of Simon Norfolk’s seminal book, For Most of It I Have No Words (1998). It is structured around two major themes, Natural Histories and Human Nature.
