Remnants and the Breached Boundary exhibits new and recent work by three artists whose practices whilst quite different cross on areas concerning places, memories and found material. Some of the works in this show are inspired by places near to Gravesend.
Jon Faragher is a multi-media visual artist who investigates techno-fossils (obsolete objects found in the urban or rural landscape), and whose approach – a form of technical archaeology – brings
together research and making based on his findings.
Mercedes Balle’s work consists of an exploration of the human relation to the natural world and an understanding of a landscape that has been modified in all aspects for human needs but in which nature resists its control.
Nao Fleming uses acrylic and oil to explore themes of memory, place and objects, interweaving her own experiences with the imagined stories of others.
