Another Land is an exhibition and events programme, devised and produced by LDoc students to showcase experimental visualisations of place in art and design research.
Bringing together practitioners from across Kingston University, the Royal College of Art and University of the Arts London, contemporary works and events have been integrated into Kingston Museum, engaging with themes of past and present, real and imagined, identity and community.
The exhibition and programme draw links between creative practice and anthropology, archaeology, architecture and geography, encompassing video, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, photography and print. This is extended with a series of screenings of moving image works presented at the Stanley Picker Gallery, exploring concepts of human movement, environmental narratives and emerging worlds.
Denise Ackerl, Victoria Ahrens, Maxine Beuret, Karen Bosy, Daniel Brackenbury, Ben Branagan, Pamela Breda, Adriana Cobo, Tom Coward, Sinead Evans, Azadeh Fatehrad, Mireille Fauchon, Matthew Flintham, Leah Fusco, Hugo Glover, Carl Grinter, Ayano Hattori, Greta Hauer, Felicie Kertudo, Marianne Keating, Melanie King, Jina Lee, Lana Locke, Jane Madsen, Gareth Proskourine-Barnett, Emily Richardson, Matthew Richardson, Cole Robertson, Hannah Rollings, Caitlin Shepherd, Matthew Turner
