A solo exhibition of all new work, 'Where Lies the Land?' is named after a poem by the victorian Arthur Hugh Clough.  Locke goes further with his motifs, addressing the symbolism of statuary, monarchy, houses and ships.  Throughout an extensive and complex practice, he remains dedicated to illuminating histories - highlighting the relevance of the past within the context of contemporary culture and politics.  Locke's critique of existing power structures is subtle and open-ended, encouraging the viewer to look more closely.

The exhibition launch is from 6 - 8.30pm on 26th September, and is free and open to the public.

From the series "Souvenir", Hew Locke, 2019
