About Space Place Practice:
These two exhibitions were created by Space Place Practice, a collective group of multidisciplinary practitioners who share an interest in researching the wider aspects of ‘landscape’ and take inspiration from a sense of place:
The Museum Box Project: Something of Place
The Museum Box Project builds on the theme of a research seminar when each member of Space Place Practice brought 'something of place' with them to the event. Each member went home with a museum box in which/with which to develop their connections with these somethings and places as a way of presenting their ‘place’ to others as a finished artwork for exhibition.
Library of Pilgrimages
Inspired by the Robert Macfarlane’s description of the artist Miguel Angel Blanco’s Library of the Forest, members of the group each created a ‘mini-installation’ on the theme of a ‘personal pilgrimage’ where each artist has put a special interaction with a space or a place in the small confines of a foolscap filing box. Each response records how we endow places with special responses and recognises how a place may be integrated into our own ‘inner' landscape. This gathering of boxes records an intensity of feeling and responses to ‘place’ that becomes the beginning of another ‘pilgrimage’.
