LANDSCAPE IMAGINARY is a series of exhibitions and events presenting the work of artist Daniel & Clara across the East of England.
In that strange Spring of 2020 when the first lockdown was announced, Daniel & Clara unexpectedly found themselves residents of Mersea Island on the Essex coast. Taking their permitted 1 hour of exercise per day to walk and explore their new environment, they created a body of work called On The Island. Consisting of 100 videos filmed over 1 year, each shows a moment of looking and listening to the landscape. A response to the psychological impact of the global pandemic and the physical restrictions of lockdown, this work captures the disorientation and sense of rupture that was experienced through that time.
LANDSCAPE IMAGINARY launches on Sat 21st May with an exhibition of On The Island and weekend of events on Mersea Island. Following this, Daniel & Clara will present a series of exhibitions, talks and screenings across the East of England, taking their work to Metal Southend, Jaywick Martello Tower, Groundwork Gallery, Firstsite, 303 Projects and more!
The project will conclude in October with a symposium at Norwich Castle, exploring the way the East Anglian landscape has inspired the imaginations and work of historic artists and writers from the region.
