Engaging, empowering, energising culture in Exeter

Edward Chell 'Soft Estate' Interview

8 March to 3 May 2014

The exhibition ‘Soft Estate’, the title of which derives from the Highways Agency term used to describe the natural habitats that have evolved along motorways and trunk roads, looks at how green borders offer a refuge for wildlife and a modern form of wilderness in the midst of intense urbanisation and agrochemical farming.

Artist and academic Edward Chell, and Invited artists interrogate themes of ‘edgelands’, those familiar yet ignored spaces that are neither city nor countryside. Their works present juxtapositions commonly experienced in these minor landscapes, such as beauty and pollution, wilderness and human agency.

This exhibition has been organised in collaboration with The Bluecoat, Liverpool.
