The sense of place, whether in the pristine wild or amid the clutter of the city, whether derived from the locality of our birth or a dwelling place of choice, whether acknowledged or suppressed, pervades how we live and work.
Place is integral to human integrity and to our sense of being.
‘in situ’ comprises work by artists from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom; examining the experience of locality, exploring the intimacy of personally familiar places and the particular relationship each artist has with their environment.
‘If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know who you are’ Wendell Berry
