Product description

Place (2014)

This book documents the Place Project – a collaboration between the visual artist Kurt Jackson and 32 contemporary writers. Jackson invited each writer to choose, and then justify in words a Place in Britain. Then, in an epic series of journeys Jackson visited and worked at each chosen location responding with a series of paintings, drawings and sculptures.

Contributors include Mark Cocker, Jim Crace, Helen Dunmore, Michael Eavis, Patrick Gale, Jimmy Goodwin, and John Vidal.

The project demonstrates not only the diversity of British landscape but more fundamentally will give insights into the concept of Place – the sense of Place, encompassing that collective sense of identity, meaning, longing, nostalgia and attachment within the British psyche.

This book is in as-new condition.
