When talking about landscape a set of preconceived ideas, traditions and conventions come into play. On Landscape Project, conceived by Minna Kantonen, Dafna Talmor and Emma Wieslander, seeks to instigate discussions around representations of landscape through an itinerant programme of exhibitions, events and a dedicated website. On Landscape #3, featuring renowned artist James Ravilious’ photographs alongside Kantonen, Talmor and Wieslander’s work, will also include site-specific installations, slide projections, video and a selection of artist books. The exhibition, organised in collaboration with host venue Lower Hewood Farm’s director Alexa de Ferranti is programmed to coincide with Dorset Art Weeks. 

A central element of the exhibition consists of a library of artist publications, providing a platform for wider debates around landscape whilst presenting an opportunity for a range of international practitioners to showcase their work that include:

Peter Ainsworth / Bridgette Ashton / Stuart Bailes / Rob Ball / Allison Barnes / Diogo Bento & Jorge Almeida / Kristina Bengtsson / Sarah Bittel / Marianne Bjørnmyr / Julia Borissova / Enda Bowe / Christian Brems / Tessa Bunney / Alex Burgess / Stefano Canto / Ben Cave / Sanna Charles / Xiaoyi Chen / Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman/ Catherine Clover / Matthew Conduit/ Alvaro Deprit / James Duncan Clark / Lewis Cole/ Christopher Down / Aline Dufat / Paul Gaffney / Johanna Gibbons/ Maia Gusberti / David Harker / James Herman / Glen Jamieson, with Jonathan P.
