PRECIOUS PLACES, an exhibition from the PRECIOUS COLLECTIVE, curated by Lynne Speake, at Alliages gallery in Lille from September 12th to December 5th, 2020.
This the 3rd Precious.Collective group show brings together 22 of our members unique response to the idea of preciousness of place:
Where do you go to when the world’s mayhem crowds you and you need to escape for a bit … where do you go?
Perhaps you go there every day; every week; every year; every decade or once in a lifetime – maybe even somewhere you know you’ll never see again.
It might not be a physical place. It might be a place from memory; a safe place that makes you smile and breathe the moment you think about it. It might be the place in your head that you escape to while creating your work. Wherever it is, it’s precious to you.
22 exhibiting members answered this question.
A tree, just like a human is a symbol of growth and change. The meaning of a safe and comfort place is to feel harmony with nature. Trees and precious places in woods give me a feeling of connection and security.
