TASKSCAPE at The Collection by Lincolnshire based artists Kate Genever and Adam O’Meara. The exhibition is a collaboratively produced installation developed specifically for the space and will explore notions of landscape, journeying and contemporary collecting.

Kate and Adam are Lincolnshire based artists, working to explore ideas related to landscape, livelihood, and dwelling. They attempt to offer an alternative and contemporary take on these age-old subjects. Their primary concern is to challenge and consider new and alternative ways of looking, thinking and representing our local landscape, whilst increasing audience access to contemporary artwork. Taskscape contains new work by both artists and has been developed especially for The Collection. Kate as an artist and farmer shows work from a growing archive that documents her family’s relationship to the land at their Lincolnshire based farm. Adam a photographer explores the relationship between rural and urban. An aspect of his visual practice will be produced in collaboration with the Cognitive Psychology Department at Lincoln University.

Audience members will over several intervening Fridays be invited to re hang the show, acting as curators to restructure the space and the work. The artists will be present for questions and assistance, but we will not interfere with the choices. These re-hangs will encourage the audience to consider new meaning and ways of looking whilst allowing an exploration of landscape as a cultural construct.

“We want the audience to interact with the work in a hands on, ears on, eyes on way, where we try to reinforce the relationships with the task/landscape we have built and commented on, but also as a way to demonstrate our particular views of what we have found and seen.”
