Place Myths

3rd May – 31st May
Weds – Sun 11am – 5pm

The term “place myths” was coined by Nina Lubbren and David Crouch as a way of describing how the sights associated with a location gain traction in the public consciousness. Using collage Louise expands her interest in the material culture of tourism. Although the images are not based on real places, the use of colour and image is intended to conjure up feelings and memories of past tourist experiences. The imaginary quality of the work also aims to critique the use of visual images in tourist literature as a way of generating desire in the traveller.

Dr Louise Atkinson has recently completed he PhD in Fine Art specialising in art and anthropology. Her work is in public collections including the V&A and her work is being included in an exhibition this month at The Tate Britain – Library and Archive Show and Tell; AMBruno Artist Collective.
