The homecoming leg of Kurt Jackson’s touring show.

This exhibition sees Kurt collaborating with 32 writers from a diverse range of backgrounds and results in a body of work that varies in scale from postcard-size pieces to large canvasses.

It reveals the physical diversity of the British landscape, whilst providing an insight into the concept of ‘place’ – that collective sense of identity, meaning, longing and nostalgia present within the British psyche.

By inviting 32 contributors, including the writers Robert Macfarlane and Richard Mabey, as well as scientists, poets, and even Michael Eavis (founder of Glastonbury Festival) to write a personal transcript of a place they felt a connection to, Jackson was able to gain an insight into how this eclectic mix of writers and thinkers view the British landscape. This created a unique opportunity for him to shift the location of his work away from the immediately personal, to places, environments and landscapes that generate a sense of attachment in others.

The final showing of this touring exhibition includes previously unseen works alongside a small show looking at Cape Cornwall.

You will be able to listen to audio chapters from the accompanying book ‘Place‘ by scanning QR codes throughout the gallery with your mobile phone, iPad or tablet. Simply download a ‘QR Code Reader’ from the Apple App Store or Google Android Play Store. Many of these ‘QR Code Readers’ are available for free.
