Tom Ireland | Every day we are apart, (I miss you more than ever)
In a space surrounded by the dramatic landscape of Brontë country, Tom Ireland presents an exhibition of new works developed in response to South Square Gallery's unique setting.
Taking as a starting point the geographical location and literary heritage of Thornton, Ireland will present a site-specific multimedia installation based around a continued interest in mythology, the nature of making and the power of fiction.
For the artist, the geographical area around Thornton is one underpinned by mythology: the weatherworn physical space of the moors can be seen as a vast expanse of romantic sublime which owes so much to fiction and literature. Similarly, the affective terrain of the lunar landscape, documented in the photographic records of the Apollo moon landings, also exemplifies this strange and remote quality: unforgiving, romantic and sublime.
