PAULINE ROWE & DAVE LOCKWOOD – THE ALLOTMENTS
29 AUGUST – 28 SEPTEMBER 2019
POP-UP EXHIBITION: VICTORIA GALLERY & MUSEUM, UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL
Allotments are spaces in the heart of a city that feel removed from it — places that celebrate and respect the cycle of life, offer escape from the everyday, and provide the opportunity to work alongside others to make things grow.
The Allotments is a collaborative artistic meditation about Dingle Vale allotments in Aigburth, one of twenty-five working allotment communities thriving in Liverpool.
The project explores these spaces of cultivation and society through the work of photographer, David Lockwood, poet, Pauline Rowe and painter, Arthur Lockwood. The Allotments has been authored with the co-operation of the allotment holders, who shared their insights, stories and experiences — as well as their shared commitment to plots of earth that remain places of belonging away from home.
