Elan's Human Heritage Exhibition Open

2 years 6 months ago

Elan Links' latest exhibition is open to view in the visitor centre exhibition hall. Elan's human heritage is explored through the work of the first three artists in residence, Zillah Bowes, Marcelo Sánchez-Camus and Daniel Crawshaw. 

Zillah Bowes is a photographer and filmmaker, who explored night time portraits. Her work frequently examines the role of the landscape and its relationship to the individual.

Marcelo Sánchez-Camus is a creative practitioner whose practice include collaborative performance-making, psychogeographic explorations, installations and socially-engaged live events. His work includes exerts from his book Elan Calls, which was produced as a result of his residency and is avaialble to buy at the shop in the visitor centre.

Daniel Crawshaw focused his residency onto the theme of disposession and loss. He explored the valley on foot, taking multiple photographs before returning to paint on a variety of materials. The unique hanging piece in the exhibition hall is one such example.

The artists, in their own ways, explored how humans have impacted Elan's landscape and how Elan's landscape has shaped the lives of humans.

The exhibition will be in place until the end of March 2020.
