Subterrania : Solo tour

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


A solo touring exhibition hosted by Newlyn Art Gallery, Cornwall. Large-scale photographic works by Fiona Crisp, curated from four distinct series of images, produced over the last six years. The images in question range from Early Christian Catacombs and a Second World War underground hospital in Guernsey, to the nearby lead mining museum at Killhope, County Durham. All of these locations were chosen by the artist primarily for the sense of physical power that they evoke but also for the fact that they are all now tourist sites where complex relationships between heritage, leisure and history are brought into question.
