Shona Illingsworth @ CGP London
13 October 2016 - 27 November 2016
Lesions in the Landscape by Shona Illingsworth 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 as part of an international tour, and now shortlisted for the 2016 Jarman Award.
