Fabricated Country

Piers Greville

Side Gallery
Opening 2018-07-06 18:00:00

The work in Fabricated Country examines a landscape through expanded landscape painting. It floats aloft the idea of this specific heterotopic terrain; a historical meeting place; an extraterritorial space; a climate island ecosystem with an expiry date.

The contemporary global environment is no longer merely exploited, it is now subject to our actions and attempts at control. This precarious posture of support, its echos of a colonialist stance, and the reductive practice it entails is a key ingredient in the slide to the new post-truth world. Through this expanded painting work a flimsy and troubled terrain is speculatively rendered.
