'The Landscape of Memory', 1–3 March 2012

NoFormat Gallery, London

supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy, London


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Marcel Proust

'The Landscape of Memory' is The Memory Collective's inaugural exhibition in London 2012. It represents a rare opportunity to see international and established artists from Scandinavia and the UK, whose practices cover film, installation, painting, printmaking and sculpture.

The subject of memory is a universal experience which offers artists a new public platform for their practices, and means of dialogue and engagement within the UK art world.  Memory defines a sense of self and our individuality from which we build our “thinking” landscape. It can also, in a mirror-like fashion, determine how an artist responds to landscape and the exterior world in general; selects and stores visual images perceived; and subsequently how and why we make use of this vast storehouse of imagery. This response to landscape takes account of often multi-sensory impressions of sight, sound, smell and touch – synaesthetic experiences which involve the artist in a profound process of creative immersion. Our inaugural exhibition is an opportunity to view art works which reclaim the profound cultural value of the artist’s hand, authentic experiences, expression and imagination, and creative intelligence’. (Dr Angela Summerfield, Founder & Curator of The Memory Collective)
