We develop a sense of place through experience and knowledge of the history, relationships, culture, architecture, geography, and geology of an area. Elysium Gallery is looking for work based on the topic of Urban & Rural. With the boundaries between the two becoming increasingly blurred by contemporary life, with all of its luxuries and freedoms, people have started living their lives in different ways, rendering conventional and separate definitions obsolete. As the population and our economy grows so does the opportunity to profit from the countryside’s violation and it begins to disappear. The towns and cities expand and the Rural landscape is increasingly replaced by the Urban, with it’s ‘green spaces’ planned by professional architects. Surely something is lost in the process? Is the notion of Urban & Rural now becoming irrelevant or as we continue to explore and inhabit every square mile of the earth mean it is more important than ever to have them separate?
The overall winner and the winner of the student prize will be announced on the opening night.
