A virtual exhibition where we need have no guilt or fear about polluting the planet by flying somewhere exotic in our dreams!

Robert Macfarlane in his book The Old Ways says:

“We tend to think of landscapes as affecting us most strongly when we are in them or on them, when they offer us the primary sensations of touch and sight. But there are also landscapes we bear with us in absentia, those places that live on in memory long after they have withdrawn in actuality....”

For this project, our artists were asked to produce a painting, collage, print, photograph or work in any other medium, perhaps a ceramic tile or a piece of jewellery, inspired by the memory of a place they have visited or long to go.

Each artist has supplied a few words describing their work and the place they long to be during lockdown.
