The work of five artists who have documented over a long period of time the social, physical and cultural importance of a place/places with a strong personal resonance for them.

About

In archaeological 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.

Primarily focused on architecture and social history, the show encompasses photography, video and architectural drawing/studies.

Pierre Kellenberger, a well-known young Swiss photographer who specialises in architecture and design, documents his home-town of Zurich.  Michael Kirkham's photographs from his acclaimed social project, Urban Goals, shows a selection of work from his home city, Liverpool, and also from London.  James Milne's drawings and photography are studies of the post industrial sites in South Wales near his home in Newport.  Amanda Loomes' experimental documentary films consider the generations of work in the industrial sandpits of Surrey.  Charlotte C Mortensson has been documenting the housing in Trench Town, Jamaica, since 2006, where the area's volatile history is reflected in the powerful, ever-evolving self-built architecture.

The show is a continuation of the well-received exhibition of the same name which was held in Kunsthaeuschen Herrliberg, Switzerland in 2019.  Both exhibitions have been curated by exhibiting artist, Charlotte C Mortensson.
