Here, There and the Elsewhere - Lincoln -
Here, There and the Elsewhere is a touring project supported by Arts Council England and Lincolnshire County Council. It explores space, time and the ways in which memory and anticipation influence the perception of place. The themes are treated in a general way and also in ways directly related to the five places on the tour.
The artist, Graham Underhill, made research visits to Lincoln on four separate occasions, making drawings, taking photographs and recording video. As an infrequent visitor he came to the city with an innocent eye and recorded images purely for their visual interest. In addition to visual impressions, written records of the incidents and sounds of everyday life were made for inclusion in the finished works.
Children from Monk’s Abbey Primary School and a senior resident of the city collaborated in the making of a video piece, providing their thoughts and memories for the sound track, bringing additional layers of memory, anticipation, imagination and meaning to the completed film.
To enrich the exhibition in Lincoln, the artist invites visitors to contribute their own memories and visual impressions of the city. What visual aspects of Lincoln are gone but not forgotten? What visual images are the highlights of the city? What thoughts of the past do the street names conjure up? What changes will the future bring? Thoughts can be added by posting them in writing at the exhibition, or by submitting them through the Lincoln pages of the project website:- www.herethereandtheelsewhere.com
Opening daily 10am - 4pm
