Book Launch: 'In a Place Like This'

The premier book launch and chaired discussion of three new publications within the on-going artistic research project 'In a Place Like This', exploring both personal and historical traditions with a strong relationship to the representation of violence, took place on 13 March.

'In a Place Like This' explores the echoes of places, people and a terrible history being repeated. The central question to the project is the difficulty we face when we try to communicate our most intimate experiences to others. The discrepancy concerns the very structure of testimony itself - the language of image and its representation and how to make ideas and emotions visible. Our hope is that this exploration is neither an explanation nor a mystification, rather it attempts to propose visual discussions.

'In a Place Like This' is assembled as a montage, an interwoven idea, in an attempt to review a narrative within the landscapes in which it is inscribed.
