A new exhibition brought to you by Crescent Arts which brings together nine artists, responding to the theme place. It asks what does ‘place’ look like? How do we define it, how do we value the places that we live/visit/dream of?In the past year the idea of place has changed greatly. With restrictions on travel and greater time being spent indoors, notions of place have been challenged, altered or adapted.
In response to this Crescent Arts, Scarborough commissioned nine artists Georgia High, Ro Hardaker, Rhiannon Kendall, Sarah Mole, Molly Newham, Aphra O’Connor, Kat Spence, Sommer Vass and Meg Wellington-Barratt via an open call to respond to the theme. Their work varies across mediums ranging from film, performance, ceramics, illustration, sculpture, writing and audio. These diverse works highlight the nuances of the term and will get audiences to reflect on what place means to them, whether real, a memory or imagined.
