Ellen Harvey @ Turner Contemporary

18 May 2021 - 26 September 2021

The Tourists explores themes of tourism and ecology, our relationship to images, architecture and place, destruction and loss. Working in painting, sculpture and digital media, this exhibition brings together a group of Ellen Harvey’s large-scale installations comprised of meticulously rendered paintings and engravings.

The centre-piece to the show is a new work called ‘The Disappointed Tourist,’ comprising over 200 paintings of sites that have disappeared. From the Temple of Bel in Syria to Brandy Bucks restaurant in Margate, Harvey has crowd sourced places from across the world. Embarking on this work before the Covid-crisis, it has developed an unexpected resonance.
