LANDSALE 2.0 considers the role of territory in the collective past of Britain and South Africa.
This exhibition of paintings and installations explores how the violence of invasion and vested interests of exploitation have been embedded in maps.
Ava Grauls (1982) is a South African / Belgian multimedia artist based in London who has recently graduated from the Royal College of Art.
Her research is aimed at decolonising her past through speculative questions about the legacy of culture and how geography influences identity.
LANDSALE 2.0 follows her journey through the past, winding between the deserted roads of ex-mining lands towards the memory of the British Empire.
The Old Fire Station hosts LANDSALE 2.0 from 11 January to 10 February 2024.
Join the artist for the opening on 11 January 2024 from 6.00 to 8.00pm.
