SHONA ILLINGWORTH: LESIONS IN THE LANDSCAPE

Lesions in the Landscape

Lesions in the landscape by uk/danish artist shona illingworth is a powerful multi-screen installation, exploring the impact of amnesia and the erasure of individual and cultural memory. The work reveals the devastating effects of amnesia on one woman and the striking parallels with the sudden evacuation of the inhabitants of st kilda in the north atlantic in 1930. It examines the profound effect and wider implications of memory loss on identity, space and the capacity to imagine the future.
