Above Ground

18 December 2015 – 12 February 2017

An exhibition exploring the impact of architecture, imagination and memory.

Architecture may be bricks and mortar, but it also provides a psychological framework in which we live. Our built structures contain cultural memory and are inhabited by rich, multi-layered personal associations. The authorised erasure of so much of this city’s built heritage has exposed a sense of cultural amnesia. Above Ground is dedicated to memory and loss and is a tribute to the human ability to rise beyond adversity.
