Legacy by Debbie Godsell
Café Wall August
‘Legacy’ is a collection of photographic screen prints and ristons. It is a continuation of a recent exhibition of by Godsell entitled ‘the infinite whatever’. Godsell examined how we use the concepts of our local environment and landscape to better understand ourselves. In Godsell’s case, the exploration of ‘threshold’ or ‘thin’ places through landscape imagery and symbols helped her to overcome grief and loss. Landscape ultimately came to represent recovery. ‘Legacy’ goes further and considers our positioning within the global landscape and our geological record in terms of mass extinctions, plastic pollutions, deforestation, to name a few.
