Lesions in the Landscape by UK/Danish artist Shona Illingworth is a powerful multi-screen installation, exploring the impact of amnesia and the erasure of individual and cultural memory. The work reveals the devastating effects of amnesia on one woman and the striking parallels with the sudden evacuation of the inhabitants of St Kilda in the North Atlantic in 1930. It examines the profound effect and wider implications of memory loss on identity, space and the capacity to imagine the future. As part of an international tour and now shortlisted for the 2016 Jarman Award, lesions in the landscape comes to CGP London in autumn 2016.
This exhibition is produced by FACT Liverpool in association with CGP London, Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre and UNSW Galleries, Australia and is supported by an arts award from the Wellcome Trust with additional support from the University of Kent. With special thanks to the National Trust for Scotland and Scottish Screen Archive NLS. A new publication will launch following the exhibition.
