“SPACE IS THE PLACE”

By: Patric Rodger & Angelo Madonna

A part CGs “In Cahoots” 21/22 programme

Space is the Place is Patric Rogers in collaboration with Angelo Madonna’s deeply personal memoir to his most sacred of spaces, Hilbre Island. It is a cerebral exhibition project exploring the psychogeography of one of Wirral’s iconic landmarks. Space is the Place encourages the viewer to connect deeper to the environments and places around them and to explore how our connection to place is made through our experiences, dreams, memories and through the landscape itself.

The project began it’s life during our recent lock down period in the mind of its creator Patric Rogers. Patric spent many years during the summer months working on Hilbre Island. Often alone he was left in the quiet of the island to explore it’s history, secrets and mysteries. For him the island became a teacher and a place of reflection and solace. Our recent period of national difficulty has opened the doors for people to explore their surroundings with a new found appreciation and it is through the telling of the stories of the island, its history, mysteries, folklore, psychogeographic power and the people who are drawn to it that this exhibition aims to help others connect to their own spaces of reflection and solace.

In this multi part installation experience, Space is the Place encourages the viewer to consider their own sense of space and place exploring how, place, dreams, memories and landscape combine to create a deeper connection with the landscape.

“Space Is The Place” will take place @Convenience Gallery @Bloom Building
