LANDED (FREEMAN'S WOOD) - an exploration of landownership through contemporary art
StoreyG2 commissioned three sets of artists to lead an investigation of the Freeman's Wood site, to research and explore land-ownership and its social effects, and to produce new art works, which would aim to raise awareness of, and stimulate thought about, these issues.
We wanted the project to have the potential to reach a large audience, so we asked the artists to produce artworks in forms suitable for distribution on-line, rather than objects for display in a gallery, or on site.
Layla Curtis developed an i-Phone app, entitled TRESPASS, featuring conversations about the site.
