Sweep~Landskip, an exhibition of international artists whose works use landscape
as a concept. Within their ideas, we find a sense of timelessness, abstraction,
figuration and a mapping of physical origins, and a cultural overlay of human
presence. Traces of humanity appear where nature becomes landscape and
bodies perceive external stimuli.
Landscapes are culture before they are nature; constructs of the imagination
projected onto wood and water and rock, Simon Schama
The word landskip came into use after the 15th century following the arrival of
Anglo-Saxons in Britain. It refers to a system of man-made spaces on the land.
