25th and 26th August 2013, the studio presented a number of ‘new’ works in progress from metamedia. Mandy Rathbone installed ‘Chesil Sounds’, ivon oates presented ‘listening ear’, Joe Stevens projected ‘Reinventing the Landscape’ and David Rogers installed ‘Portland Stone’.
The works are a re-exploration of the Land Art movement, recalling the works of artists such as Richard Long, Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson who brought artiffacts from the natural environment into the Gallery, thereby translating qualities of the landscape into a new context. Exploring the natural environment itself as potential for artworks.
