High Line - celebrating 50 years of the Pennine Way. (group show)

About

High Line celebrates the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Pennine Way National Trail. Through a range of works, 9 artists provide their own perspectives on the memorable experiences of walking the route. Immersive photos bring the exhilaration of wide open spaces in to the gallery, while textiles referencing the wool industry of the Pennines capture the subtle textures and colours of the landscape. Installations to do with footprints and the spine, and re-creating the sound and soil under our feet, all explore the physicality of walking the route. Walking as endurance, restoring its shamanic mystery, is considered in a video, while a constructed trig point brings a familiar feature into an unexpected context. Images captured through print and photograph consider the shifting and threading line of the Way along the watershed, as well as constructed notions of wilderness and naturalness.

Mita Solanky will be presenting new work at the South Square Gallery.

The piece 'Spine Walk' made specially for this exhibitionn, takes inspiration from the Pennine Way being known as the 'backbone' of Britain. The work is a result of walks made along the Pennine Way in it's 50th anniversary year.
