Abstract

'Ghosts of the Restless Shore: Space, Place and Memory' was an exhibition of new contemporary art by four artists (Tim Collier, Jake Campbell, Rob Strachan and myself) integrating visual, aural, historical and oral/written/textual experiences of the natural/social history of the Sefton Coast. The artists walked the Sefton Coastal Footpath together in the summer of 2014 and the work in the show is based around experiences of that walk as well as a sustained period of research in 2014/15 undertaken by the artists into the social and natural history of the coast. All the work in the exhibition examined, in one form or another, the way we (as culturally and socially informed people) interact with the natural environment, not just in terms of the way in which the landscape is experienced, but also the way in which it is interpreted and imagined.
