Rokeby Hills: Tim Coad
Discarded papers sprawl across the dirt and mingle with the leaf litter, windswept and trodden. Perishing in car skeletons, and nestling within worn tyres – These are the neglected archives that map the wounds on our environment. These are our contemporary middens.
Through the reciprocity of the landscape, the environment has returned the tools of its own ruin; in the form of the paper archive. A conflation of photography, drawing and found material sees this project re- surface and interrogate the complex cultural narratives of all who’ve left their mark on the Rokeby Hills.
