About

Over several years, artist David Ogle has been producing a series of artistic interventions into the landscape of the Sefton coast. These ephemeral works have responded to the shifting environmental conditions of this location, utilised the climactic forces that continually re-shape it and produced fleeting encounters for passers-by; witnessing the coastline as temporarily transformed and interacting with the site in unexpected ways. Such moments are captured through photography and video, like ‘postcards’ of these singular occurrences that happened out in a remote location within a narrow window of time.

The legacy of artistic responses to this coastline is reflected upon within this exhibition, presenting works from The Atkinson’s collection that depict a landscape in continual, unpredictable change and the impacts of this upon successive populations.
