In archeological terms, a persistent place describes a meaningful location repeatedly visited and inhabited, sometimes for short durations of time, but over decades and centuries, for different tasks and reasons.
This exhibition presents the work of artists who have documented the social, physical and cultural importance of a place/places that have a personal resonance for them. With work from Zurich, Liverpool, South Wales, Surrey and Trench Town, Jamaica, the exhibition focuses primarily on architecture and social history and incorporates photography, video and drawing.
The show is a continuation of the exhibition of the same name which was held in Kunsthaeuschen Herrliberg, Switzerland, in May and June 2019. Both exhibitions have been curated by exhibiting artist, Charlotte C Mortensson.
