A group exhibition considering the ways in which our perceptions of place shape our thoughts, memories and dreams.

About

Poetics of Place focuses on works by six artists living and working in Hertfordshire. With varying visual languages, artists Fiona Curran, Yva Jung, Dave Nelson, Kirke Raava, Amanda Ralph and Imogen Welch all share an inherent interest in the process of moulding and re-shaping experiences of memory or place. 
The exhibition considers autobiographical thoughts, nostalgic narratives and re-interpretation of ideas, and takes inspiration from French philosopher Gaston Bachelard's seminal book The Poetics of Space. Consisting of assemblages, textile works, painting, photography and installation, the exhibition showcases layered, meticulously constructed works that consider the undercurrents of value systems, social histories and image-making
