The Mobile Landscape. Performance at Stanley Picker Gallery

Ferguson, Nicholas (2015) The Mobile Landscape. Performance at Stanley Picker Gallery. The Mobile Landscape Performance Lecture.


The Mobile Landscape is a performance lecture that takes the audience on a tour of the highways of England. In search of a site for a public art project, the artist visits rural stretches of the motorway to inspect a series of roadside advertising hoardings in South East England. They are the type mounted on obsolete transport infrastructure and which are strategically positioned on agricultural land. As the hoardings are surveyed for their potential, there emerges a political history of the view from the road: of a countryside sculpted by the comings and goings of capital; of rural aspirations and anxieties; of clandestine livelihoods sustained by proximity to the road.
