How is technology changing our relationship to landscape? Four artists reconsider the physical world through sound, sculpture, food, film and digital animation.

During 2015-16, Natasha Rosling, Alexander Stevenson, Alistair Grant and Simon Lee Dicker instigated a series of artist residencies across the Orkney Isles. From different locations – a remote bothy, a lighthouse, a beachside golf course and a burial chamber – each artist developed distinctive connections with the archipelago, its human stories and extraordinary geography.

Odyssean: Topographies draws together common themes in their practices, including the mapping of invisible or imagined spaces, and the experience of physical and emotional remoteness. Sited in the galleries and gardens of Hestercombe, the exhibition responds to its surroundings: a landscape at once historic and contemporary, highly managed and equally wild.

Location: Hestercombe Gallery, 11am – 4pm every day
