All ages

It is often said that we are losing touch with nature, but we are surrounded by nature every day whether in the heart of the city or in the wilds of the countryside. Perhaps we just don’t pay enough attention.

Timefield weaves together stories of memory and forgetting, of nature and ageing and draws attention to the fragility of humanity as an integral partof nature. It is an exploration of the passage of time and its effect on the landscape of our bodies and our planet.

This is a cross-art collaborative installation developed by five older artists Ian Cameron, Kate Clayton, Frank McElhinney, Annie Peel, Lesley Wilson and John Wills. It includes projections of long exposure photographs showing the impact of time on the body, large scale painted wall-hangings that communicate the force of nature, and a soundscape that integrates spoken word and sound drawn from the natural world.

This exhibition is part of Luminate Festival 2019.
