From Tarmac to Towpath: Excursions into Lockdown is a collection of works created on the streets of London, Lancashire, Cumbria, Newcastle, Glasgow and the Firth of Forth when the UK was in Lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Featuring text and images from 13 artists across the UK, a document of traces emerges formed of spectral walks, psychogeographical encounters, eerie geometries, deserted towpaths, former railway lines, discarded masks, ghostly enclaves and sudden verdures. While boundaries dissolve, everything is muffled and haunted, desperate for re-connection. Dust, rust and peeling paint triggers acknowledgement of hyperawareness. Stunned side streets and somnolent houses (evoked by Graham Greene as, ‘the unfamiliar shadows of half-things, broken things, former things’) are amongst many captured moments that remind us of the unprecedented emotions and events of life in lockdown.

Boundary Songs: Notes from the edge of the Lake District National Park

“In a series of excursions worthy of Iain Sinclair, David delves into the uncanny past and present of the Lake District National Park boundary…

– for London Orbital think Cumbrian Orbital – “

WILL SMITH: CUMBRIA LIFE OCTOBER 2020 issue

Discover. Explore. Inspire. On the fringes of England’s largest national park, now a World Heritage Site, an alternative vision emerges. In late 2017, a walk around the boundary of the Lake District uncovers a hidden landscape consumed by ghosts of nostalgia. Roughly 160 miles where it’s never quite clear where the muddy paths and coastal ridges will lead. Stumbling upon industry as theme park on the border between urban and rural. A hallucinatory journey reimagining the in-between lands of cinematic markers, a sixteenth century noblewoman, artists such as Graham Sutherland and a constant stream of found debris. From a meeting with Silecroft’s mafia at Valley End to the gates of Sellafield, the edge of darkness is revealed.

Welcome to a different ‘place to be’, where the pastoral and sublime rub shoulders with nuclear and second home syndrome – on the edges of Brexit…
