Memory into Landscape


Elysium gallery is pleased to announce, Memory into Landscape, a group exhibition which invites artists to respond to the subject of landscape; especially how the past imprints itself on the present in our physical environments.

Memory into Landscape considers our relationship to time and place as layered and complex.  Spatial encounters with landscape can embody and activate an array of perceptions, processes, events, memories and experiences whose origins lie deep in time, evoking clues to an ancient history of stories, myths and legends that reverberate through to the present-day.

We are looking for artists who explore the land by investigating the relationship between landscape, history and identity through their own personal experiences, perceptions, and narratives, to demonstrate a unique investigation into the Underland*.

*Underland: A deep time journey, Robert Macfarlane, 2019, Hamish Hamilton
